The Algarve region
Similar to what happens on a global scale, local agri-food products in the Algarve also face competition from large-scale, specialized and intensive production, linked to large-scale distribution. However, associated with the emergence of the Short Circuits and Local Food Systems movements, the dynamization of the consumption of agri-food products has grown and contributed to the local economy and regional development.
In the Algarve, the agri-food sector has enormous potential for growth when associated with tourism and its main economic agents, in particular Hotels and Restaurants, which can increase the incorporation of these local products into their offer. The Agrotur Catalog is a facilitating tool for them to find local products and the respective suppliers best suited to their needs.
