Futog Cabbage Producers

Serbia - Vegetables and vegetable preserves

Throughout the Balkans it is traditional to preserve cabbage in vats of brine. The resulting product has a slightly sour flavor and is in fact called kiseli kupus, literally meaning “sour cabbage.” In Serbia, kiseli kupus is made using artisanal methods by most families living in rural areas. The kiseli kupus from the village of Futog, in the autonomous province of Vojvodina, has been famous since the times of Ottoman rule for its incomparable quality. Today, thanks to the support of the Swiss NGO Seedev, around 60 producers from the area are campaigning to obtain a denomination of origin for their product and organizing themselves into a consortium in order to better protect and guarantee the future of their production.
