The excellent testimonials of the FOOD EXPO 2022 indicate that the exhibition is the most significant commercial forum, and a major reference point in the Southeast Europe for the professionals of the Food & Beverage sector.
At FOOD EXPO I found that the primary sector of our country is the lever that can lead to the reorganization of the Greek economy. I saw companies with very good quality products. I have seen dynamic manufacturing companies that have managed in recent years to increase the country's export product and I am sure that the future is even more promising.
George Georgantas / Minister of Rural Development & Food
We are very happy that FOOD EXPO and Oenotelia are taking place, because they are two very important exhibitions for the food and beverage sector in Greece. We expect a large number of visitors and it will be a top meeting for the Greek and global f&b market.
Dr. Roland Fleck / CEO NürnbergMesse Group
Our presence at the FOOD EXPO 2022 exhibition is proof that we support actions like this, which contribute to the development of the agri-food sector of our country but also to the increase of the export activity of the sector’s businesses.
Andreas Poulas / Member of Parliament for KINAL, Head of Rural Development & Food
It is a special pleasure for me to visit the FOOD EXPO exhibition, an exhibition that supports and promotes small and medium producers of food and beverages, which are the backbone of the agri-food sector in our country.
Stavros Arachovitis / Member of Parliament for SYRIZA, Head of Rural Development
Food Expo was a great opportunity to see the possibilities Greece can provide, in terms of quality, products and quantity, and find companies with high potential. You have great foods, especially olives and olive oil, which we don’t produce in my country. This was an opportunity to find new great products.
Pablo Alvarez / President, Sylstore Company SA (Costa Rica)
My impression of the exhibition was great, everything was very well organized, and I feel very satisfied with the number of exhibitors and producers participating in this fair.
German Elwein / Fine Food Importer, Schnitter & Co (Germany)
The reason I came to the trade show was to find companies who could become partners, and I did find many partners in Greece, mainly olive oil manufacturers and canned peaches producers, and many others. I really feel that my objective coming to this trade was achieved.
Donggi Kim / Merchandising assistant, CJ Freshway (South Korea)
I think that the fair was better than last time, I found all the products that I was looking for, and I have to say that the quality was high, the prices were also very good, and the food was delicious. Next year, I plan to bring with me more buyers from Oman to Food Expo.
Al Tamimi Yaqoob / General Manager, Tamimi Markets (Oman)
My impression was more than positive: the hotel, the shuttle, the logistics, the transportation, everything was great, we feel very familiar and happy to be here.
We were expecting less exhibitors, and we are surprised that the fair was so crowded and well visited, with many small companies and small producers -this was exactly what we were looking for.
Leonhard Geyer / Managing Director, Feinkost Käfer Gmbh (Germany)
In Food Expo, there is potential to develop new markets, to be competitive with prices and introduce quality products. It’s great to be open to so many opportunities. I came to find different products, such as fruit, olive oils, vegetables, and I did. Food Expo is a great opportunity to find so many diverse companies in one place.
Jorge España / Commercial Manager, Garesa S.A. (Guatemala)
The number and quality of the products in Food Expo was outstanding. I thought it would be smaller, but I saw many companies that have a lot of potential within and outside the European market. I saw products I didn’t even know from all over Greece. I would recommend Food Expo to anyone because the organization was one of the best I have ever experienced.
Gintare Didziokaite / Brand Manager, JSC Straikas (Lithuania)
We came to Food Expo looking for wines, but when we came, we also found other products that we were not looking for, such as the Greek mountain tea, which was surprising, a really high quality product. Overall, it believe it was a really nice experience to be in Food Expo.
Patryk Tyszkowski / Brand Manager (Wine Category) - MV Poland SP. Z.O.O. (Poland)
We were in Food Expo for the first time, and we are very much impressed. We have experience going to fairs all over the world (Italy, Austria, Spain etc), and I can say that Food Expo is excellently organized. We have had meetings, we’ve done tastings, and obviously there will be collaborations between our company and companies in Greece.
Toni Bartulović / CEO, Centaurus DOO (Croatia)
The organization of Food Expo was great, and we were very well received by the companies. We expected Food Expo to be smaller, but it was not at all, which was a very nice surprise. There was a good number of exhibitors, the amount of products, the variety and the quality were all great, and we are overall very satisfied.
Daniel Pintchovski / Commercial Manager, Gourmand Alimentos LTDA (Brazil)
We were looking for different products to bring to the Brazilian market, and we found many that were exactly what we were looking for, from several brands and suppliers. We feel that we have achieved our objective coming to Food Expo, and we do believe that coming here was a good decision for us.
Patricia Bratt / Marketing Director, Gourmand Alimentos LTDA (Brazil)
It took more than 20 hours to come from South Korea, but everything was very impressive here, at Food Expo. Despite the pandemic, our stay here felt safe. Moreover, I was surprised that so many Greek producers and distributors participated as exhibitors, I was really fascinated. If I have the chance to visit Greece again, I hope it will be here, again.
