Funded by the Italian Cooperation, this project aims to improve consumption and production patterns in the Mediterranean region towards more sustainable food systems focused on the Mediterranean Diet.
Co-ordinated by CIHEAM Bari, in partnership with Albania, Lebanon and Tunisia, MEDIET project is expected to reach all the countries in the Balkan, Mashreq, and Maghreb areas to promote the Mediterranean Diet through the implementation of a knowledge sharing system and to strengthen local food systems and diets.
