"The exhibition also, highlights and promotes the Cretan quality products, designated as PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) as well as the organic products. Our main goal is not only to bring the flavors of Crete in Germany but also to guide the foreign consumers through original tastes of Crete and create an experience based on the originality of our people".
