Equipment installation – final works in Community Kitchen

November 4, 2016

The kitchen equipment and furniture had arrived in Palanca and were just installed. Our Community Kitchen is now very close to its final shape.

Basing on preferences of the local producers, the furniture was adjusted to the room’s conditions. While using the kitchen, every cooking will be accompanied by charming view through the windows.

In the next days, the final cuts will be done (such as placing tiles on the walls or connecting the water pipes). After that, the Community Kitchen is to be officially open on the occasion of Christmas Fair in Palanca.

Works carried out under “Moldovian Culinary Routes: micro¬investments, promotion, registration” project funded by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the Polish Development Aid and implemented by the Policy Development Foundation and its partners: Ecological Movement of Moldova, „Casa Parinteasca” and LGD „Vistula Terra Culmensis – Development through Tradition” from Stolno, PL.


Round table on PGI – second edition

October 14, 2016

Further advancing and promotion of the EU voluntary food quality schemes (PGI/PDO/TSG) in Moldova requires improvement in the access and competitiveness of control system for the PGIs – the necessary issue to be solved with all key industry stakeholders included.

The round table with participation of Vasil Luca, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Marcela Spahiu, Ministry of Agriculture representative, representatives of MOLDAC – National Accreditation Center in Moldova and Development Policy Foundation team: Wojciech Szpociński and Agata Koziej, jointly discussed the existing obstacles on adjusting the Moldovan legislation to the EU procedure and possible solutions.

The key obstacle is the lack of control body accredited in Moldova, certified to control the PGI non-wine products and lack of a clear procedure of how to receive such accreditation.

This stagnation in the control system was discussed on the example of 2 products registered as PGI (rose petals jam of Calarasi and apricot palinka of Nimoreni) as the result of national procedure in Moldova completion (within the project implemented in Moldova by Development Policy Foundation, Polish Aid 2015). Nevertheless, to use PGI mark as the temporary national protection, producers’ groups must proceed through the control procedure – which is currently impossible, due to the lack of appropriate control body in Moldova, holding the right accreditation for particular product classes, and in the same time being qualified to control PGI/PDO/TSG products.

This state of things is related to the small number of PGI products in Moldova aiming to be officially registered yet and lack of clear information for the producers about the benefits and further opportunities of such certification.

Further steps were discussed and possible cooperation between the key institutions involved in the process, in order to overcome the impasse and pave the way for the producers.

In front of each home of manufacturers on route, information boards with maps were installed. The route is furthermore marked.

Renting a bike from Casa Părintească allows to three free tastings as part of the trail, on the basis of a special coupon. This form of verification is also used to assess the popularity of individual producers and their products - after completing the tour, tourists leave coupons with their votes in Casa Părintească. Basing on the number of votes, manufacturers will share the work space of Community Kitchen among themselves.

Furthermore, the main part of the renovation of Community Kitchen was completed. The process of strengthening the structure of the historic building, adjustment and montage of the installation came to an end.

Network of producers from Câlârași region as a part of bike routes offer

June 20, 2016

The inclusion of local producers into the network functioning in the framework of cycling culinary routes and training for Moldovan producers from Câlârași region in scope of registration of regional products - these were the goals of the first visit of Development Policy Foundation experts in Moldova under the project "Moldovan Culinary Routes: microinfrastructure, promotion , registration", implemented by the Foundation with support of Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs from Polish Aid 2016 programme.

In the village of Palanca, at the headquarters of partner - organization Casa Părintească, experts of the Foundation met with the producers of food products from the region, interested in participating in newly created food network. The network will include manufacturers from around Palanca, Hirjauca, Racula - with the possibility of extension to other areas.

The network of producers will be integrated with the bike routes by products tasting system. Each bike rental user will receive a voucher for free tasting of 3 products on the route. After finishing the cycling tour, the biker will have opportunity to purchase all the products offered by the manufacturers at the Casa Părintească headquarters. This formula of inclusion of the products tasting into the cycle routes offer and participation in the network will enable local producers to better promote their products and reach out to a wider group of customers by offering products under one brand and trademark. A separate local brand will raise the prestige and recognition of the products and make them unique.

There was also discussion about the issue of equipping the Community Kitchen - common creative workspace emerging at the headquarters of Casa Părintească, open for producers associated in the network. It will include full equipment necessary for the production of fruit and vegetable preserves, as well as materials for packaging products. The most important issues related to preparation for the renovation of room where the Community Kitchen will be arranged were viewed. Needs of producers have been adjusted to the conditions and constructional possibilities of the object.

Local manufacturers, during the meeting with Polish experts, presented their ideas for products that will create a joint offer. The result of the meeting was a creation of a list of products that will be the first in a range of sales and tasting. They will include the preserves from rare local varieties of fruit, such as Kandil Sinap apples - old variety from Crimea, as well as seasonal fruit. The first products from the offer will be presented at the event inaugurating a new culinary cycling route, planned for September 2016.

In addition, a first part of the training for manufacturers in the field of procedures for the registration of regional products was held. Practical issues have been supported by experiences related to the registration of two products from the region Câlâraşi within the last year’s project - from apricot palinca Nimoreni (Rachiu de Caise de Nimoreni) and roses petal jam (Dulceata din petale de trandafir Câlâraşi). We are planning also further support for the producers of the two products registered last year, in scope of the registration at the EU level - in the form of trainings, practical consulting and working meetings with representatives of institutions responsible for the registration process.

Furthermore, there is planned the establishment of Community Kitchen - creative workspace for local producers from the area of Palanca village. The local community will be included in the co-creation of the tourism product based on cycle routes and tastings of local products. We invite you to download the mobile application with routes of Câlârași region. The application and information about manufacturers will be extended during the project. There will be also a new tasting route created, offering the possibility of tasting and buying local and regional products.

Creation of a brand of regional products will increase the promotional potential of products and will promote the region as a seat of culinary heritage.

Among the activities of the project, we plan promotional events for the regional products - on the occasion of the new bike trail inauguration and Christmas fair. There will be also organised a study visit of Moldovan partners in Poland - they will participate in the festival of regional products in Gruczno (PL), meet with local producers and take part in a series of trainings and meetings with people working in the food sector and regional products marketing.

Moldavians visiting local Polish producers

July 28, 2015

In 20-26 August, study tour in Poland was organised. The group of participants consisted of producers’ representatives, NGO representatives, journalists & student tourism clubs representatives. Within the week, the group participated in various local study tours and workshops.

Study tour was divided into 2 parts: the first one, organised by project’s partner: LAG Vistula Terra Culmensis, took place in kujawsko-pomorskie voivodship, near Stolno and Chełmno, and consisted of local study tours at local producers.

Moldavians met the producer of rapeseed oil from Saint Laurence Mountain, in Kałdus. This family business of rapeseed oil production by cold processing method is a continuation of tradition known in Poland since 16th century. It’s considered as the healthiest plant oil, thanks to its richness of unsaturated fatty acids. It suits well for frying, as well as an addition to salads and sauces. http://www.olejdlazdrowia.eu/

Later, participants of study tour visited a bakery in Stolno, working as a village cooperative. Different types of bread are made in bakery – some of them are certified regional products (caraway bread).   http://www.wshp-stolno.pl/

During the visit in a dairy in Lisewo, the group had an opportunity to learn the process of producing yellow cheese from the scratch. The cheese is unique and its registration as regional products is under the way.

An interesting example of support for farmers was a visit at linseed oil producer in Świecie on the Osa. The cold-pressed lineseed oil is sold under the regional brand - Spiżarnia Kujawsko-Pomorska – a claster developed to promote high-quality traditional, regional and ecological products. http://spizarniakujawskopomorska.pl/

Participants from Moldova learnt also about the unique tradition of producing plum jam, a regional product form Lower Vistula Valley.

The final event of the first part of study tour was participation in the Festival of Flavour in Gruczno – an international-scale fairy of regional, traditional and ecological products (http://festiwalsmaku.pl/). With the help of Polish partners, Moldavians presented and sold their traditional products to the visitors of the fairy. The stand was jointly occupied by participants of study tour from Tajikistan (Development Policy Foundation project financed by Solidarity Fund and Education for Democracy Foundation), who learnt also how to promote their traditional products. A common work in promotion and sale on the fairy, was a chance of integration between Moldavian and Tajik group.

The second part of study tour, organised by Devleopment Policy Foundation took place in Warsaw with a main focus on promotion, marketing and fundraising.

Participants visited Slow Food Market in Warsaw, a trendy every-week event, gathering producers, restaurateurs and cooks of regional and ecological products, with an aim to present culinary trends and promote small food initiatives.

The main parts of the programme were project writing workshops, animated by Development Policy Foundation’ experts: Wojciech Szpociński and Sylwia Szparkowska. The workshops consisted on presentations and working in groups about the project development scheme and possibilities of fundraising. The group work ended with creating two promotional strategies for products and ready, fully developed project proposals.

Culinary bike routes - initiative to increase tourism attractiveness of the region

June 14, 2015

Creating bike culinary routes in Câlârași region along with equipping bike rental center in Palanca village is a next step in project’s activities.

Two bike routes, each of 20 km, are to be developed and designed, containing local attractions: architecture, nature, culture and culinary. The main idea is to not only show the tourism attractions, but also to include the regional culinary traditions factor. The routes will be designed to pass by local producers’ venues, where it will be possible to buy local cheese, bread, honey, wine or craftwork.

Two trails will have a starting point at Palanca, where the rental bike center will be placed.

For these needs the venue in old traditional farm building will be adapted, on the area of Parential House – museum of Moldavian village in traditional house, run by Tatiana Popa. At the beginning, rental center will be equipped in 10 trekking bikes with necessary accessories.

- Culinary routes and bike trips have potential to make tourists stay longer than few hours – mrs Popova says. – Câlârași region is in an hour distance by car from Chisinau, what makes people come and go back to the capital within few hours.

As to increase attractiveness of created bike trails, there will be free mobile application available to download, working offline. The detailed map of region will be included, along with marked trails and information about all attractions in the neighborhood: architecture, nature, culture and culinary.

Despite being located so close to Chisinau, the region is rather unknown for its active tourism attractions. The promotion in social media and via bike and tourist clubs is supposed to change this tendency and attract tourists. Moreover, mobile application working with GPS will be extremely helpful in exploring region on its own.

Additionally, there will be detailed data about local producers included in the application. The aim is to enable tourists to stop by on the route and buy some local bread, cheese, honey or wine, as well as some local craftwork.

For local producers such advertisement and possibility of direct sale will be profitable. Including them into a local network of tourism attractions will increase their income and convince others to participate. The culinary routes idea will help to develop tourism brand of the region and promote active tourism connected with culinary traditions.

Geographic Indication products’ registration – first grass-rooted initiative in Moldova

April 27, 2015

The theme of GI products’ certification procedure and its benefits for producers were the main issues of the first cycle of presentations and workshops led by Polish and Moldavian experts within the project.

Polish experts’ visit in Chisinau and Palanca village, located 80 km from the country’s capital, consisted of cycle of workshops, local study tours and participation in local food market in Raciula village. The aim of those visits was to create a network of local producers and then to include their offer into bike culinary routes to be developed within the project as a next step.

Firstly, experts paid a visit to mr Mihail Vladicescu, a director of the fruit and vegetable preserved enterprise in town of Câlârași. The rose petal jam he produces will be one of the products registered within this project.

Another producer to be visited was Dumitru Vicola – producer of fruit palinka from Nimoreni. His apricot palinka will be the first spirit drink from Moldova to be registered as GI.

Experts visited the Honey House (Casa Mierii) in Raciula where honey base products are made – balsamique liquer and honey vinegar.

The next part of the programme was a participation in the festival of local food and wine in Raciula village - Golden Barrel Homemade Wine Festival organised by Chamber of Commerce.

Within a network of producers will be included also local craftmen. As the example, there is “Casa Olarului” - a pottery house in Hogineşti, where mr Vasili Gonciari continues family pottery traditions.

The final visit was at Casa Părintească in Palanca village, where Tatiana Popa runs a museum of Moldovan village of Câlârași region in traditional house.

Workshops led jointly by Polish and Moldavian experts (Wojciech Szpociński – chairman of Development Policy Foundation and Alecu Reniţa – chairman of Ecological Movement of Moldova) focused on Moldova need assessment and its approximation with EU in line with Polish and European know-how in terms regional products’ registration and promotion.

Moldavian producers learn about possibilities of GI certification and the procedure of registration, however there is no support or advisory body to help them go through this procedure – both on the level of creating registration application and whole process itself.

Legal issues concerning registration procedure in accordance with Moldavian law were topics of talks between representative of AGEPI (State Agency on Intellectual Property of the Republic of Moldova) and Ministry of Agriculture and Polish experts and Moldavian partners. For the project supports the first grass-rooted initiatives of registration products as GI, and the very first one of food and spirit drink products, the external help is necessary in paving the way for other initiatives.

Polish experts’ assistance will be continued until submitting products’ application forms.
