EkoFjera Mediterranean Returns to Prokurative in Split this Weekend

Daniela Rogulj

On Friday, May 17 at 9:00 am, Prokurative in Split will host a two-day fair of ecological products titled ‘EkoFjera Mediteran’, organized by the Public Institution for Coordination and Development of the Split-Dalmatia County RERA SD and the Association of Ecological Producers of Dalmatia “DALMACIJA EKO”, reports Splitski Dnevnik on May 15, 2019. 

EkoFjera will be held for the fourth consecutive year, and each year under a different theme. This year, the theme of the fair aims to promote the Mediterranean diet and way of life, since Ekofjera is held as part of the MD.net project – valorization of the Mediterranean diet as a non-material heritage of UNESCO funded by the European Union through the INTERREG Mediterranean program. One of the most important results of the project is the development of new products based on the Mediterranean diet. Split-Dalmatia County will focus its activities on this segment in the development of products of island secondary school cooperatives.

The organization of EkoFjera Mediteran is just one of the activities of the project that focuses on bringing Mediterranean nutrition closer to school children.

Since its inception in 2016, the fair has been educational and has encouraged the participation of primary and secondary school children from Split-Dalmatia County. This year, the “Mediterranean Ecological Marenada” will be organized for approximately 500 school children of the first grade. School children and their companions will be presented a healthy, ecological version of breakfast as well as the importance of sustainably purchasing and using local foods in their preparation. Several well-known athletes will participate, who will additionally animate their examples of healthy eating for the children. 

Ekofjera is the largest ever this year and for the first time has spread its wings internationally. Namely, more than 60 ecological producers from Croatia and Italy will be presented, which is an excellent opportunity for consumers to meet ecologists and establish long-term contacts for purchasing organic food. Particularly interesting is the fact that this year there will be significantly more producers of fresh programs, and ecological fruits and vegetables, which in previous years was deficient.   

And strap on your dancing shoes for Friday night, as the jazz and Bossanova band Hot Shots will take the stage – with top quality organic wines, brandies and juices for everyone to enjoy.
