Wild Nuts & Berries

The most emblematic and valuable gourmet nut is the Mediterranean pine nut, but from Antiquity edible seed or fruits have had an important role in this area. Pine nuts harvesting has been mechanized considerably -reducing costs and labour risks- and that, along with the most innovative research on forest genetics is helping to modernize the value chain of this NWFP.

In spite of this pests, diseases and fruit pests are one of the main fronts to address, besides the adoption of new forms of forest management taking into account adaptation to climate change, with the focus on the fact that new business opportunities must guarantee traceability and product quality throughout the value chain.

Chi siamo

Il progetto INCREDIBLE ha lo scopo di mostrare come i prodotti forestali non legnosi (NWFP) possono svolgere un ruolo importante nel sostenere la gestione forestale sostenibile e lo sviluppo rurale, creando reti per condividere e scambiare conoscenze e competenze. Il progetto INCREDIBLE promuove la collaborazione e l'innovazione intersettoriali per evidenziare il valore e il potenziale dei prodotti forestali non legnosi nel bacino del Mediterraneo.


Il progetto INCREDIBLE ("INNOVATION Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin") riceve finanziamenti dal programma della Commissione Europea Horizon 2020 secondo il grant agreement Nº 774632.
