Riga Food 2020 Testimonials

Kaspars Gerhards,
Minister for Agriculture

Agriculture, food production and processing industries play an important role in the Latvian economy. Latvia’s domestic products are already being exported to more than 150 countries around the world. In order to promote cooperation opportunities and give everyone a chance to present their products, it is important to promote cooperation and the emergence of ideas also at exhibitions! With a view to further strengthening of the local market, promoting competition in the European Union and in the global markets, it is important to continuously take care of the stability of sectors, as well as opportunities to develop new markets at the international level.

Andrian Rosa,
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Moldova to Latvia

Riga Food was an excellent opportunity to present our Moldovan products and investment opportunities not only to the Latvian audience, but also to all visitors of this important international food industry event.

Some entrepreneurs have already managed to sign export contracts during the exhibition, not to mention contracts with the local chains of stores and restaurants. The participants of the Innovation Stand were addressed by Rimi klēts and Elvi, the chain of SIA Lāči stores, Sky & More Gourmet and Kalnciems market. Someone was offered to sell their products in Jūrmala, another - in an international online store. By the way, after the exhibition, the products of our participant - hand disinfectants - will be sold at Finnish airports.

Monika Michaliszyn,
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Poland to Latvia

We sincerely thank all our partners and guests for visiting the Polish Embassy stand at the international exhibition Riga Food 2020. We are glad that our offer aroused great interest among the visitors. We hope that the contacts established during the exhibition will promote further cooperation and development.

Jānis Šolks,
COB, Latvian Dairy Committee

Dairies have once again surprised consumers with new, unprecedented combinations of flavours and aromas. Companies have proven over the years that we can be creative and innovative. Combining master skills, ingenuity and the best ingredients, every single company managed to surprise us, therefore, we invite people not only to taste the products from this great list of winning products, but also to choose high-quality made in Latvia dairy products, thus supporting our dairy farmers and processors.

The number of targeted visitors at the exhibition was a pleasant surprise. In view of the global epidemiological situation, more stakeholders than we expected attended the exhibition. My thanks go to the Riga Food organisers for their excellent attitude.

The value of this exhibition is high-quality contacts, and it is therefore encouraging that Riga Food also brought together a high-quality audience – targeted visitors.
