Atlantic Food Export promotes food sector in the Nordics

Between May 16th and 18th, several companies participating in the Interreg Atlantic Food Export project from Portugal, France, and Northern Ireland headed to Denmark and Sweden on a business mission.

In Copenhagen, companies from the agrifood sector participated in the Essence of the Atlantic – a showcase and tasting of products from the Atlantic region, together with Scandinavian importers and distributors. Additionally, a retail tour was organized through several food retail chains in Denmark and Sweden. The following companies participated in the international promotion initiative:

Market Access was responsible for organizing the food show and the retail tour, as well as identifying and inviting importers and distributors from Nordic countries.



The initiative was promoted by the Vila Nova de Famalicão Municipality, a partner of the project.

Atlantic Food Export is a project supported by the EU under the Atlantic Area Interreg Program involving partners from 7 European regions. The project aims to improve competitiveness and increase exports of Agrifood sector SMEs primarily by encouraging business cooperation initiatives, such as export consortiums. The project activities are intended to help the participating SMEs to overcome some of the barriers to internationalization arising from their small size, structure, skill set or lack of resources.

The partners are Chambre d’Agriculture de la Dordogne (France), ASINCAR (Asturias, Spain), Cámara de Comercio de Sevilla (Spain), Câmara Municipal de Vila Nova de Famalicão (Portugal), Cork City Council (Ireland), Northern Ireland Food & Drink Association (Northern Ireland), BIC Innovation (Wales).
