How to join
Regions throughout Europe that want to be or are already in the process of promoting regional foods are invited to join the Culinary Heritage Europe network. There is a great added value of a joint European Network for promoting regional foods.
This is how a region becomes a member of the network:
1) New regions join as candidate region. A regional organisation (e.g. a public authority or equivalent) applies to the European coordinator (Official European License Holder) to become candidate region
. This is done on a special application form (Candidate region application form).
2) The candidate region is supported by the European Coordinator in the introductory phase as candidate region and participates in an obligatory two day training course
given by the European Coordinator.
3) After completed training course, the candidate region may apply to become an approved region
on a special application form (Approved region application form) which grants full rights as a member of the European network.
Approved regions receive the following benefits:
- Membership of the European Culinary Heritage network
- Participation in joint European activities
- A licence to use the logo
- The right to issue licences to businesses within the region
- Published details on the official Culinary Heritage website which promotes both the region and each individual business member
The European network is based on a common framework, which includes:
- Criteria and directions for participating regions
- Criteria and directions for participating businesses
- Directions for how to use the common logotype
- A basic organisational structure of businesses, regions and European coordinators.
