The idea for creating a Carpathian trademark for typical food products that could better position regional products in the quality food market was proposed by local producers in 2010. The plan was publically announced during the Tasty Spas Festival held in Spas village, Kolomya District, in the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast.
The popularity and reputation of food products from the Ukrainian Carpathians was established through a consumer survey initiated by the first phase of the Swiss-Ukrainian Project Certification in Organic Agriculture and Organic Market Development in Ukraine. This work was financially supported by the Swiss State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO) and undertaken by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL, Switzerland).
The success of this first fair showed the significant potential of producers as a high level of interest in products from the Carpathians, not only among direct consumers but also by restaurants and retailers. This encouraged the group to launch its first labelled products on 25 August 2013 during Tasty Spas, the Festival of Authentic Carpathian Cuisine in Tlumach town.
