The first Greek milk and cheese Festival opens at the Peace and Friendship Stadium in Neo Faliron today, running through Sunday. Visitors will have the opportunity to taste many relatively unknown types of cheese and watch traditional cheesemaking.

The festival will also feature a cheese competition, as well as mini-conferences concerning the problems faced by Greek animal farming and the latest developments in milk production and processing. These will include a conference today on the development and promotion of the Greek animal farming sector and the prospects of strengthening its competitiveness in the Greek and foreign markets. Tomorrow, there will be a briefing event for consumer associations on feta cheese.

Some of the largest Greek dairy industries have been under investigation on charges of forming a price cartel and an official report is expected soon.
