A most effective way of supporting SME’s is through clustering. Clusters can be composed of farmers and manufacturers in order to promote local products and support their dynamic incorporation to key points of sale. The Region of South Aegean will support a pilot-clustering programme, designed to bring together the Aegean Cuisine Restaurants and local producers (including farmers and manufacturers). The project – which will give restaurants the possibility to be awarded the European Region of Gastronomy logo – will require restaurateurs to indicate in their menus the names of producers that provide them with the products used for their dishes. This will give each product an individual identity and producers the recognition that they deserve.
