As an international metropolis, Guangzhou houses delicacies from across the world. When talking about European cuisines, local people usually think of French food, Italian food or Spanish food and so on.
“It’s a pity that I seldom find any Polish food in Guangzhou. They are very delicious. It can be a great complement to our food service industry,” said Miss Wu at a Polish food campaign in Guangzhou on September 22. This is when things are going to change.

Organized by the European Union and the Republic of Poland, the “Flavors of Europe” campaign was launched at the Food Hospitality World China 2016 (FHW China 2016) in Guangzhou from September 22 to 24, 2016. It is a road show activity to introduce agricultural products and cuisine from Poland, and boost the reputation of Polish foods in Asia.
As one of the biggest pork and apple producer in the world, Poland’s agricultural products, cuisine and fruits will be introduced to Guangdong through the “Flavors of Europe” campaign. Mr. Piotr Zieman, the Chairman of Butcher and Processed Meat Association of Poland said, “Apples from Poland will be imported to Guangzhou very soon and distributed over supermarkets and hotels.” He also said, “Polish products combine quality with tradition and meet European Union standards.”

It’s well-known that Cantonese cuisine is of long standing and focuses on freshness, giving full play to the flavor of the ingredients themselves. The Cantonese are particular about the ingredients, trying to find the perfect ones from both local and imported foods.
Therefore, this campaign is a good chance for Guangdong to cooperate with Poland to introduce more high-quality products from Poland to Guangdong people. Besides, it also opens opportunities for the Cantonese to discover the unique characteristics of food from countries of the European Union and offers more choices for customers in Guangdong.
