Armela Qendro, the representative of Agro Meljon, has completed her studies in Agricultural Food Technology and states that this is her field of expertise. “The passion for good nutrition influenced me to pursue this field of study, and later I left the capital to return to Berat. After graduating, my first job was to get to know my area. I didn’t know Berat before; I hadn’t realized how much potential it has and how much I could contribute,” her interview for Skenderebu.info begins in such a spontaneous manner.
“Once I noticed how good my area is, how underutilized it is, I decided to delve into this field, to which I dedicated my studies. Agro Meljon is a family business; we want to do small things with great love, hence our motto is ‘a bit accurate.’ I feel saddened when I see that especially the youth are very inclined towards foreign products, which have nothing more than our local product,” says Armela, interviewed at the agriculture and livestock fair held in Tirana.
Such fairs help businesses become known, test the market, and showcase their products through tasting. It seems that after the Covid-19 pandemic, consumers have turned their eyes to local products.
Agro Meljon is a family business that artisanally produces various jams, especially unique jams, sauces, liqueurs, vinegar, and even drying various medicinal plants that can be consumed as tea. Of course, in these products, we find the dried fig of Berat, the fruit that characterizes this city. The entire family is involved in this work, from finding the raw material, processing, to packaging.
Price makes the difference. In the market, we can find products imported from abroad or traded under certain conditions. As a result, their price is lower. In the case of Agro Meljon, however, the products are organic, without pesticides, preservatives, and colorings… a bit accurate, just like their motto.
It has always been thought that eating healthy has a high cost. Fortunately, in our country, eating healthily costs less than one might think because the land blesses us with many good things at a low cost, and businesses like Agro Meljon make it easier for us by serving ready-made food products.
