About the Collection

Since its establishment in 1987, the mission of the ACA-DC collection is the systematic exploration and preservation of the microbial diversity of the Greek traditional foods, which can be considered as one of the major innovations in the field of Food Science and Technology in Greece.

The ACA-DC collection is a member of the European Culture Collection Organization (ECCO) and the World Federation of Culture Collections (WFCC). In 2010, the Collection was nominated for the European Latsis Prize “Biodiversity”.
