Event Action Plan Mountain Agriculture 2023

The aim of the action plan is to scientifically accompany the wide range of products of South Tyrolean mountain agriculture not only during their production and thus make them more competitive, but also during their processing into typical South Tyrolean products of high quality. In the field of mountain farming, the focus is on meat, milk, stone and soft fruits and vegetables, as well as on cereals and herbs. In the food sector, the focus is on bacon, sausages, jams, juices, distillates, flour, baked goods and beer.

Participation in the event is free of charge. It is requested to register at within 12.04.2023. The lectures will be held in the native language of the speakers. Simultaneous translation will not be provided.
