For tenth year running, the following are expected to participate at the Fair: major Croatian producers of prosciutto and dry-cured meat products, family farms, producers of prosciutto and Slavonian ham, representatives of regional meat industries, representatives of associations of producers, individual producers, major producers of Istrian and Drniš prosciutto, guests from Italy, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, representatives of pig breeders associations, regional family farms breeding pigs, representatives of the leading chain stores and hoteliers and caterers.
A professional conference – round table will provide an opportunity for both producers and those interested to obtain the information regarding the topical issues and the importance of autochthonous and traditional products, with an emphasis on dry-cured meat products, as well as the information about the programs funded by the EU and the relevant ministries.
Just like in the past years, a committee comprised of renowned experts and scientists will evaluate the specific quality of prosciutto of individual producers participating at the Fair, the evaluation being based on the Ordinance on Prosciutto Quality Evaluation (Pravilnik o ocjenjivanju kvalitete pršuta).
Visitors will be able to become acquainted with the magnificent and precious heritage through the performances of cultural clubs from Dalmatia and beyond, but also through the presentation of traditional customs and unique handicrafts.
Come, have a look around, taste it and buy it!
