Feta PDO ‘travels’ to ANUGA!
In the context of the 2nd year of the “European Programme for the Promotion & Marketing of Feta PDO” implemented by ELGO Demeter, our delegation participated, from Saturday 5 until Wednesday 9 of October, 2019, at the International Fair ANUGA, the leading trade fair for food and beverages in Europe, held every two years in Cologne, Germany.
More than 160,000 professionals from around the world visited the fair, which included more than 7,000 exhibitors. In an impressive stand, trade visitors had the opportunity to be informed on the way Feta PDO is produced, on its distinguishing characteristics and its origins, as well as to taste the product and receive an informational leaflet. At the same time, scheduled B2B meetings also took place.
The presence in the stand of the Minister of Agricultural Development and Food, Mr. Makis Voridis, and the Consul General of the Hellenic Republic in Düsseldorf, Ms. Maria Papakonstantinou, was a true honour. The Minister referred to the state and developments in domestic products, as well as to the great significance of the promotion of the agri-food sector’s extroversion.
