“BEE – Formaggi di montagna” will develop through two days of events, always in the sign of absolute excellence, following the will of the exhibitors themselves, expressed thanks to the information questionnaires prepared by the Villanovan municipal administration. Not only the numbers, therefore, make the growth of the event tangible and evident, but also the economic replies of the sector operators who choose Villanova Mondovì as a square to make the most of their productions.
The seventh edition, the third with the title of National Fair, continues the path towards the broad and complete enhancement of high altitude products. The architects of “BEE” will be, as usual, the Municipality of Villanova Mondovì in close synergy with the Slow Food Monregalese, Cebano, Alta Val Tanaro and Pesio Convivium and in collaboration with the Confraternity of Trippa and Rustìa di Villanova Mondovì. A meticulous behind-the-scenes work that will bring producers and visitors from all over northern Italy and beyond to Monregalese.
The goal is to increase the record figures of 2018 when they “stamped the card” over 100 producers, with presences from Liguria, Valle d’Aosta, Lombardy and also from France. Protagonists, then, are the 300 heads of the sheep and goat festival with over twenty different species of sheep and goats, with the predominance of the frabosana-roaschina, landlady, without forgetting the ‘curious’ suffolk, the ‘four corna’, llamas, until to the ‘soft’ alpacas that have caught the attention of visitors.
The 2019 edition will see the debut of the collaboration with AgenForm, the Agency for Educational Services of the Province of Cuneo which, together with the Slow Food Monregalese Convivium, will organize the ‘Meeting Bee Lab’, an event intended primarily for breeders, but also for the agribusiness companies, experts and technicians.
Saturday, November 16, from 10 am, an in-depth study will be held in collaboration with the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo: at the centre of the meeting, divided into three round tables, the themes of hygiene and food safety, of milk processing and goat meat at the end of his career, and finally the circular economy. During the discussion the participants, together with experts in the field, will have the opportunity to discuss the problems and find ideas to create a collaboration; to moderate the three work tables, an exceptional face such as Silvio Barbero, vice president of the University of Pollenzo.
