Greeks want to establish manufacturing of feta and spices in Crimea

The Chairman of the Panhellenic Pontic Union of Repatriate Scientists of the city of Katerini in Central Macedonia and lecturer of the Higher School at the Ministry of the Ministry of Agriculture of Greece Ilias Alikhanidis proposed to establish an enterprise in manufacturing of feta in Crimea — feta is a traditional Greek cheese made of ewe and goat milk, reports Crimean Information Agency.

“It would be great to create manufacturing capacities for producing feta. That’s our national product. Later on, we will have to discuss the possible ways of establishing the facility regardless of the current sanctions”, — Ilias Alikhanidis told at the meeting with deputies of the State Council of Crimea.

Moreover, he also thinks that it’s possible to build a factory in manufacturing of food additives, which are condiments and spices.

“It’s rather promising. The natural and climatic conditions contribute to it (to such a type of manufacturing — editorial note)”, — Ilias Alikhanidis stressed.

We will resemble that a visit of the Greek delegation lasted from 13 to 15 June. During that period, the Greeks took part in the research and practice conference called “The Crimean Bridge.
