Representatives of the Pelekanos Agricultural Cooperative of the Prespes National Park in northern Greece have met with Alternate Agriculture Minister Markos Bolaris to push for a more favorable framework for cooperatives and the disbursement of EU funds. Pelekanos is one of Greece’s most successful co-ops. It started in 2004 in response to the unregulated trade of "Prespes beans," a product with a protected geographical indication.
