Greece has been chosen as the main partner country at the 64th Fancy Food Show that opens today at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, New York and will run until July 2.

More than 83 countries are participating, while 43 exporters of Greek food produce will be exhibiting in the Greek pavilion organised by Enterprise Greece, as well as another 10-15 companies exhibiting outside the national pavilion.

The official opening will be held at 10am local time, after which Archbishop of America Dimitrios, Greece’s Rural Development Minister Evangelos Apostolou and the President of the Specialty Food Association Phil Kafarakis, a Greek-American, and the head of Enterprise Greece Elias Athanasiou will inaugurate the Greek pavilion.

The Fancy Food Show attracts more than 50,000 visitors every year, including buyers representing major food chains, restaurants and US importers, giving Greece a wonderful opportunity to introduce its flavours and tastes to the American market.
