Accepting the proposal of the Hellenic-Italian Chamber of Commerce, EXPOTROF opens its arms and welcomes Calabrian producers and special local products in a distinct section of the exhibition.
The visitors of 7th EXPOTROF – The Fine Food Exhibition will have the opportunity to become acquainted with a wealth of flavours from a region of the neighboring country where taste brings … familiar memories.
Calabria was colonized in antiquity by Greeks and was part of Magna Grecia. In many areas a Greek dialect is spoken, the “Graikanika”, while there are many Orthodox Byzantine churches. It is a favorite destination for Greek visitors as there is a strong affinity with this region of Southern Italy and its people.
During 7th EXPOTROF – The Fine Food Exhibition, 27 producers of the region share with us local products such as wine, pasta, cured meats, olive oil, sweets, coffee, cheeses, ice creams, sauces and much more through the AGORA ‘CALABRIA programme presented by the Greek Italian Chamber of Athens.
The programme aims to promote local Calabrian products and establish a network of collaboration with Greek businesses of the food sector.
From the 24th to the 26th of January 2020, therefore, the exhibition will host a large group booth dedicated to Calabria. During that time, each of the participating producers will have the opportunity through specific and pre-organised meetings to meet Greek businesspeople of the food sector (such as importers, traders, distributors, representatives) who are interested in these producets and wish to develop new co-operations. Furthermore, during the exhibition product presentations and tastings have been planned so that every visitor can taste and get to know these products in the best possible way.
