For 3 days, the European Union (EU) campaign Un Viaje a Europa en cada bocado participated in the 2022 edition of Expo Gastronómica, held at the CIEC WTC (Centro Internacional de Exposiciones y Convenciones from World Trade Center) in Mexico City.
More than 10,000 visitors, including professionals, entrepreneurs and students from the gastronomic and the hospitality sector (HoReCa) attended this year’s edition of the fair. Un Viaje a Europa en cada bocado stand delighted them with its spectacular canapé bar featuring top ingredients from Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Spain and The Netherlands. And all paired with an incredible repertoire of European beverages, such as beers and wines from Austria, Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, Sweden and Poland.
On the first day of Expo Gastronómica, EU Ambassador to Mexico, Mr. Gautier Mignot, visited the stand and said that: “The European Union, through its campaign Un Viaje a Europa en cada bocado participates at this fair to encourage Mexican entrepreneurs to experience first-hand the high quality of EU agri-food products, and eventually bring them closer to Mexican consumers. They can be certain that our food and beverages are not only safe and authentic products to consume, but also offer unforgettable flavours.”
In addition, Un Viaje a Europa en cada bocado hosted 3 cooking shows held by our chef ambassador Mariana Orozco. She shared with the attendees the preparation of authentic European recipes, such as an Italian pasta carbonara, a Portuguese crème de leite and an Irish stout beer cake, while highlighting the benefits of using EU ingredients.
