TIRANA, November 22
Traditional food products from Permeti area will be easier to find in the market. A food incubator for typical Albanian products was inaugurated in Permeti town on Wednesday. It will provide access to local food systems and also a market for the farmers of the area. The incubator will focus on two main lines. One for grappa production and the other for drying, cutting, and packing fruit and vegetables. The project is funded by the national scheme on agriculture support and the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS)
Moreover, all the products will be certified and conforming to food safety standards. The initiative will offer equal opportunities to established companies as well as individual producers.
