In Berlin, Germany, the International Exhibition for the Food Industry, Agriculture and Horticulture “Green Week”, which Latvia this year is the partner State to, is ongoing at a large scale. Since the opening of the exhibition, Latvia’s stand has acquired a great interest of German people and Berlin guests. As soon as the exhibition is opened for visitors in the morning, Latvia’s stand gets crowded with people the whole day long.


Latvia’s food producers are daily visited at the stand not only by consumers but also by business people from Germany and other countries – representatives of retail chains and wholesale depots, exploring cooperation possibilities, regarding imports of products produced in Latvia.


Berliners and city guests confirm that this year Latvia’s stand at the “Green Week” has attracted a great attention by both a tasty and attractive design and a vast assortment of products offered for tasting and sales at numerous Latvia’s producer stands. There are many German people at the stand of the Association of Rural Tourism “Lauku ceļotājs” (Rural Traveler) actively interested in recreation opportunities in Latvia’s rural areas.


At the catering section of Latvia’s stand where the company “Lido” takes care of visitors’ meals, it is difficult to find an empty seat particularly at lunch time when on the nearby stage Latvia’s post-folk group “Rikši” is performing. German people enjoy Latvian traditional food offered there. Whereas, at the stand of the State joint stock company “Latvijas pasts” (Latvia’s Post Office), numerous visitors used the opportunity to purchase a post card and send it on the spot to a family, friend or business partner by attaching the postage stamp dedicated to the “Green Week” and which is depicting Latvian Blue cow. This postage stamp has been issued in one million copies and within some years it can become a rarity in collections of philatelists. 


At the exhibition “Green Week” in Berlin, Latvia is represented by more than hundred Latvia’s companies, organizations and farms. Latvia, as the partner State of Berlin “Green Week”, particularly is in the spotlight during the exhibition. It is an excellent opportunity for Latvia to continue acquainting the world with food produced in Latvia and recreation possibilities in rural areas. The exhibition “Green Week” in Berlin 2015 is held from January 16 to 25.
