National Prosciutto and Cured Meats Fair to be Held at Alkar Hotel in Sinj

By 7 October 2020

October 7, 2020 - The National Prosciutto and Cured Meats Fair will be held at the Alkar Hotel in Sinj on October 16 and 17, 2020. 

The National Prosciutto and Cured Meats Fair, with International Participation in Sinj, promotes the traditional way of producing cured meat products in cooperation with the new standards. Thanks to the constant engagement of all associates, manufacturers, institutions, and experts, the fair is being held for the fifteenth year in a row.


In recent years, the National Prosciutto Fair in Sinj was held in March or April with about 70 exhibitors, and it took on international character due to the participation of exhibitors from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, and Italy. The exhibition includes prosciutto, cured meat products, cheese, wine, olive oil, and traditional products produced in the rural part of Dalmatia, Lika, Slavonia, and the Dalmatian islands.


Producers of prosciutto and other cured meat products from Croatia, representatives of the regional meat industry, producers' associations, family farms engaged in pig breeding and prosciutto production, and leading retail chains, hoteliers, and caterers are expected to participate in the Fair this year, in compliance with all epidemiological measures.


In addition to the exhibition, a rich cultural and artistic program will be organized. Within the fair, it is planned to organize professional and educational panels where producers and visitors could be informed about topics related to production, marketing, protection, and promotion of traditional products (quality labels, introduction standards, association models, the technology of production, and processing of prosciutto) and incentive and funding programs by government and other institutions, especially through tenders intended for rural areas.
