Flax Feast-Cultivating Wellness


The non-governmental organization, “Eko Eho” from Bosanski Petrovac, organized the event Flax Feast-Cultivating Wellness. Fifteen producers exhibited their products, including five flax producers and one cooperative. The event was supported  with lectures by experts from the Agricultural Institute at the premises provided by the municipality of Bosanski Petrovac.

The Day of Petrovac Flax featured engaging activities such as tasting traditional foods and drinks, informative lectures on flax production, and interactive discussions. There was also a cultural program to enhance the overall experience. The flax producers exhibited their goods, including flax oil, flax grain, and flax meal with increased omega-3 fatty acids. Other exhibitors presented fresh vegetables, fruits, juices, medicinal herbs, and traditional bakery products. Additionally, dairy producers exhibited local cheeses with added supplements, including cheese supplemented with ground flax seeds.

The activity is supported within the Project: Promotion of Economic Diversification in Rural Areas of South-Eastern Europe (SEDRA II) in SEE – Value chain capacity building on agriculture and rural tourism to promote employment opportunities supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and implemented by GIZ in partnership with SWG RRD.
