On July 18th, at the Novotel Hotel in Wrocław, a remarkable event took place, marking the commencement of the “From Field to Wrocław’s Table” project. The initiative, co-financed by the Economic Development Office of the Wrocław City Council, brought together 25 local food producers from Dolnośląskie and 10 renowned restaurants from Wrocław.
During this extraordinary gathering, restaurateurs had the opportunity to taste exquisite cheeses, natural cold cuts, freshwater fish preserves, aromatic jams, honey, pickles, and local spirits. These products hailed from esteemed producers such as Breslauer Gin, Browar Wielka Sowa, and Winnica Bielawska, showcasing the diversity and richness of Dolnośląskie’s culinary heritage.
The “From Field to Wrocław’s Table” project not only focuses on promoting local flavors but also emphasizes education and awareness-building. As part of the initiative, a scheduled educational meeting took place on October 6, 2023, at the Old Library for individuals under 35 residing in rural areas of the Dolnośląskie region.
During this event, experts like Arletta Ziemian from Browar Stu Mostów and Bartosz Jurga from Kiszone Specjały shared their experiences in running businesses in the regional products industry. Participants also had the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session, discussing aspects of managing local products, marketing strategies in the food industry, and other topics related to entrepreneurial endeavors.
The “From Field to Wrocław’s Table” project stands as an excellent initiative bridging food producers and restaurants, creating a connection between rural areas of Dolnośląskie and the tables of Wrocław’s eateries. It is not just a culinary experience but also a step towards supporting local businesses and promoting sustainable consumption in the Dolnośląskie region.
The Economic Development Office is implementing the project co-financed within the framework of the National Rural Areas Network under the name “From Field to Wrocław’s Table.” It encompasses a broad campaign shortening supply chains, aiming to promote local food producers and Wrocław’s gastronomic concepts that appreciate the value of healthy, local food, strengthening Wrocław’s gastronomic brand.
