The project evaluates registered food products, dishes served in gastronomic establishments, and handicraft products, with experiences and accommodation being added to the portfolio this year. The main goal of the project is to offer farmers and artisans an additional opportunity to earn money, thereby helping to keep the fields cultivated, the artisans at work, and the residents able to continue their lives here. Knowledge is passed down from generation to generation, professions die out more slowly, and thanks to the Bled Local Selection certificate, the consumers, both locals and tourists, can be sure that they are buying a quality product that is the result of work and knowledge native to Bled.
