Local Development

 SAIL MED will focus on local products being grown via small scale, healthy and efficient systems.

The world is re-learning the benefits of localized, small scale production and networks. Consumers are favoring the rich tastes and natural ingredients of locally made products over mass produced goods. Better management over quality and health of products often result.

We support the development of local businesses, employment opportunities and economic networks. 

Cargo sailing transport as an alternative means for distribution will develop new local distribution networks for local products. It will also help to de-couple vital products from the world's harmful dependency on fossil fuels.
