GOVERNOR OF CRETE
Sympossio Greek Touring’, a celebration at the heart of Greece’s gastronomic excellence, showcases the finest
in food and beverages. By participating in this year’s event, the Region of Crete not only reaffirms but also amplifies its ongoing commitment to promoting the Cretan diet and the high-quality produce of its land. As we navigate an era marked by unprecedented challenges, the resilience and adaptability of our community has been paramount. Recent global events have reshaped our perspectives, underscoring the importance of innovation and sustainability in the food and beverage sector.
In this light, ‘Sympossio Greek Touring’ emerges as a beacon of inspiration for all participants and affirms the sector’s robust
potential in both local and international markets. In Crete, the agri-food sector along with the Mediterranean and, more specifically, the Cretan diets embody authenticity, tradition and the living history surrounding us. The uniqueness of Crete is not merely about maintaining tradition but also about innovating and setting exemplary dietary standards, drawing from the island’s bountiful resources to reclaim its culinary identity. To the organisers of this year’s Sympossio and, personally, to Mr. Angelopoulos, we wish every success while expressing our warm congratulations for their excellent efforts in supporting both Greek and Cretan gastronomy.
