EUROCASTANEA is the European chestnut network. It brings together the chestnut producer organisations of 5 countries: France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Austria.
Each year Eurocastanea organises the European Chestnut Days in a producer country. This year it was in France, in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, in early october.
As part of the European Days, a webinar will also take place on 21 and 22 october 2021. See the website for more information.
In 2019, the network published the Chestnut White Paper, a compendium of chestnut production figures in Europe and the world. It also highlights trade figures (imports and exports). The White Paper is also a demonstration by the 5 countries of their initiative to enhance the value of chestnuts and boost production. Read more.
