Greek From Thessaloniki Candidate for European Farmer of the Year


Greek farmer Christos Panagiotidis from Thessaloniki, Greece, will participate in the European competition for the best young farmer.

The competitors add up to 19 from an equal number of member-States of EU. The winner of the second European Congress will promote the most innovative agricultural practices that currently have been developed in Europe.

Christos Panagiotidis contests in three different categories; a) the best European farmer, b) the best viable practices, c) the most innovative practices.

This institution was set up by the European Parliament and the European People’s Party. In particular, the idea of this competition belongs to the vice-president of the European Parliament, George Papastamkos. This year the vice-president of the European Parliament along with the Greek MP of the European Parliament, George Koumoutsakos are in charge of supporting the Greek candidacy.

The Greek contender has created an entire farm unit in Thessaloniki, where he produces food for Greek animals which he breeds biologically.

The European Congress of the young farmer of the year aims to promote the most innovative and best agricultural methods in Europe and to orient young people towards the countryside and farming as the young farmers represent only 10 percent of the European agricultural sector.
