From Farm to Fork - Strengthening the weakest links in the tourism value chain through Culinary Slow Food Tourism

To empower local farmers to become vital suppliers of high quality, high nutrient local food by directly engaging with both tourists and operators. The aim is to strengthen those who are the weakest links in the tourism value chain.
