“The Gastronomo and Kathimerini quality awards annually bring to the fore the remarkable achievements of Cypriot producers who often remain unrecognized in our country, demonstrating their pride in local products,” journalist Yannis Adilinis told DIASPORA NEWS. . The 9th edition of the Quality Awards will take place on Tuesday, June 27 at 8:00 p.m. in the courtyard of the Cultural Center of the Municipality of Strovolos.
“For nine years, this esteemed institution has rewarded ten outstanding Cypriot producers who serve as beacons. These people have spawned innovative ideas and persevered with unwavering determination to bring them to fruition, even in difficult circumstances. They have pursued relentlessly their goals, always prioritizing consumer satisfaction, environmental awareness and sustainable practices,” he noted. Adilinis further highlighted that the upcoming event will celebrate and honor small family businesses and mid-sized businesses.
According to Adilinis, the “G” tasting committee meticulously evaluated 70 high-quality Cypriot products through blind tastings. Their expertise helped identify the best products in ten categories, including halloumi, traditional products, olive oil production, red wine culture, white wine, exceptional quality, creative Cypriot cuisine, sustainable development and the prize of honour.
