To this aim a detailed proposal for the sustainable development of the dairy industry in Montenegro, as a pilot project for the enhancement of the food industry and the introduction of sustainable agriculture practices in Montenegro, was approved by the Steering Committee held on February 9th, 2009. Providing the national market with well identified typical products developed according to the best practices concerning the sustainability will add value not only to the Montenegrin dairy sector itself but also to the tourism, supporting the development of the agro tourism and the promoting the image of Montenegro as a destination with high quality local products. In this framework the development of a thematic tourist route in a pilota area of Montenegro represents the first step towards the implementation of international safety and quality standards, necessary to guarantee a good and sustainable appeal on the international market as well as the compliance with the EU requirements. The aforementioned measures is supported by an innovative marketing strategy suitable to increase the value generated by milk processing and products distribution through a better visibility of the whole sector and the offer differentiation; this approach allow to couple the efforts in marketing with an efficient and profitable distribution system featuring an optimized chain and alternative paths.
