BASCIL – Innovative Solutions for the Rural Food Production Sector to Diversify into Sustainable Culinary Tourism Services
Small food producers in rural areas have been strongly affected by the pandemic, rising energy prices and increased production costs. This has a major impact on the resilience of the local food sector
In the BASCIL project, 15 partners in 8 countries will work on solutions for small local food producers to be able to diversify their business. By integrating conventional small-scale food production with culinary tourism services, it is possible to reach the end customers directly and obtain a higher value for their products with the shortest value chain.
Across Europe, the countryside of the Baltic Sea Region is currently not very well known as a culinary tourist destination. Active involvement of food producers in culinary tourism are distinct opportunities to make the region more visible and attractive to visitors.
The project is co-funded by Interreg Baltic Sea Region.
