Context: 

For 10 years, they have been carrying out intensive promotion of the local heritage using traditional methods. As the core of this heritage are traditional products, the methods of promotion used so far have been adapted to the historical image of the products. There were also traditional methods of promotion: fairs, shows, folders, leaflets. The most effective method of advertising products was usually "whisper promotion".
After the initial "local" boom, there were signs of stagnation or even a decline in interest in rural tradition. The need arose to refresh the image of traditional products, to pack them in modern design, to apply new technologies and to learn about modern methods of promotion and sales.
