First national fair for herdsmen and farmers to be held in spring

The first national fair for herdsmen, farmers and local products producers will be held in Spring at the Ta’ Qali Fair and Conventions Centre, with an investment of €650,000.

The fair will be a showcase of local farming, herdsmen, fishermen and agricultural producers to exhibit their products and inform the public on the link between these sectors so that consumers will enjoy fresh and genuine food.

Parliamentary Secretary Clint Camilleri said that some 82 exhibitors will participate in the fair in April 2020. He added that the fair is aimed at addressing mistaken perceptions on farming and sectors linked to it, while it will promote the best practices in the sector.

While referring to the agricultural process that links the production of products to consumers’ food, Mr Camilleri said that there still is the mistaken idea that farming in Malta is still traditional, however farmers are adopting better and efficient methods with innovative technology and practices.
