Wild Nuts & Berries

The most emblematic and valuable gourmet nut is the Mediterranean pine nut, but from Antiquity edible seed or fruits have had an important role in this area. Pine nuts harvesting has been mechanized considerably -reducing costs and labour risks- and that, along with the most innovative research on forest genetics is helping to modernize the value chain of this NWFP.

In spite of this pests, diseases and fruit pests are one of the main fronts to address, besides the adoption of new forms of forest management taking into account adaptation to climate change, with the focus on the fact that new business opportunities must guarantee traceability and product quality throughout the value chain.


El proyecto INCREDIBLE pretende mostrar cómo los productos forestales no maderables (PFNM) pueden desempeñar un papel importante en el apoyo a la gestión forestal sostenible y el desarrollo rural, mediante la creación de redes para compartir e intercambiar conocimientos y experiencia. INCREDIBLE (acrónimo de ‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’) promueve la colaboración e innovación intersectorial para destacar el valor y el potencial de los PFNM en la región.


El proyecto INCREDIBLE recibe fondos del programa Horizon 2020 de la Comisión Europea en el marco del acuerdo de subvención Nº 774.632.
