The main goal of Decosta Labs Ltd is to revive interest and tell about the traditions of Cyprus through the production of products from agricultural raw materials (olive oil, wine, herbs) and animal husbandry (dairy products), attracting visitors to the park.
The project is expected to be a place to educate and inform visitors / tourists about the best practices applied in agriculture in Cyprus using biological methods for the care and conservation of plant species and the environment in general, as well as the traditional methods used in the processing of agricultural products in the country.
The theme park will be a center of attraction for locals and visitors alike with ongoing events and workshops at the theme park. Thus, the park will create new jobs, and will make a huge contribution to the development of nearby villages, as well as the economy of Cyprus as a whole.
