Summary/Abstract: Cultural heritage is a part of the economy that should be successfully used. Traditional food products are becoming a kind of investment for local communities and an incentive to achieve socio-economic benefits. They are part of the heritage, and given the changing trends and the growing demand for local food products, they can contribute to the development of entrepreneurship. Every economic initiative starts with an idea and a resource on which ideas can be developed. All these classic elements of entrepreneurship work the same for products created on the basis of the local food product heritage. The development of entrepreneurship inspired by the heritage of the local food product makes it possible to implement especially those undertakings whose idea is based on locality, neighborhood, ecology, nature, social authenticity and corporate responsibility. This is the opportunity to create something unique, different from the competitors’ offer. The combination of traditional products with modern methods of processing, presentation and sales creates an innovative, highly competitive product. Products of local food heritage create a new clientele among tourists who are more and more aware consumers and residents who want to identify with the place of origin or residence.
