The Cyprus Breakfast programme is a project developed by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO), the Travel Foundation of the UK and the Cyprus Sustainable Tourism Initiative (CSTI) through the ‘Cyprus Destination Partnership’.

The CSTI has the coordination of the Cyprus Breakfast programme till the end of December 2017. The goal of the programme is the establishment of a brand that promotes the local gastronomic culture and heritage of Cyprus hotel industry. Specifically, the objectives of the programme are:

• To improve the local/ traditional character of the breakfast offered by the participating hotels with a view to create an added value in the hotel service industry. This will be achieved through the addition of dishes and products which are characterized as authentic, traditional and/or identical with the Mediterranean diet.

• To develop useful information material and support knowledge building around the Cypriot gastronomy in relation both to its historical/ cultural dimension as well as with its inherent nutritional value, with a view to increasing sales of local products.

• To provide support to local producers by means of access to the tourism sector, which may be achieved through the breakfast by means of promoting their products and the particular way in which they are produced.

• To promote rural communities through their gastronomical events, thereby linking their particular gastronomic heritage with the local landscape and the natural environment. At the moment 30 hotels all over the island participate at the programme.

The goal of the CSTI and CTO is to maximise the participants by promoting the Cyprus Breakfast programme. Workshops will be organized to train the chefs of the hotels how to prepare traditional recipes. For more information please visit the webpage of the programme: http://www.cyprusbreakfast.eu/
