Welsh food and drink producers have travelled to Cologne in Germany this week to attend one of the world’s largest trade fairs for food and drink despite the uncertainty and challenge of Brexit.
Supported by the Welsh Government, eight Welsh companies will be attending Anuga 2019 under the Cymru/Wales banner, all looking to reach new export markets.
Commenting ahead of the trade exhibition, the Welsh Government’s Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths believes that it is important for Welsh food and drink to be seen on a worldwide platform, she said:
“We have set out our plans to develop the global reputation of Wales as a Food Nation. We are proud, therefore, to be supporting a strong Welsh delegation at this important global trade event, reaffirming our commitment to raising our international profile and supporting our businesses to sell their quality food and drink to the world.”
Companies exhibiting at Anuga include Ty Nant Spring Water, 9Brand Foods, Calbee Group UK Ltd, Plas Farm Ltd and Mornflake, with representation also from Evan-Evans Group Ltd, Sabor de Amor and Gut Instinct. Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) will also have a prominent presence at the event and will be looking to continue the growth of the profile of PGI Welsh Lamb and PGI Welsh Beef in Germany and nearby countries.
