Foodpreneur supported BRCP (the Tunisian Trade Board) to prepare 35 plus Tunisian companies to showcase their hot products such as olive oil, harissa, dates, and pasta at the NY Fancy Food Show.
Tunisia has a rich culinary history flavored with Arab, Greek, French, Turkish and Spanish influences, but its food is not as widely known in the U.S. as that of other Mediterranean and North African countries. That may start to change.
At the show, more than 35 Tunisian companies will present a wide range of products including olive oil, pasta, dates, biscuits, confections, spicy harissa, candies, jam, tuna and organic products in a special pavilion with 4000 sq ft exhibition space at the international trade event. There will be chef demonstrations and tastings each day.
The Tunisian Pavilion will be well located during this edition at the entrance of the main exhibition hall (Level 3).
The pavilion is sponsored by the Tunisian Export Promotion Center (CEPEX) and Tunisian Olive Oil (PACKTEC).
Tunisia first exhibited at the Summer Fancy Food Show in 1999. This year’s presence is its largest yet. As partner country, Tunisia has an opportunity to promote its image and the Tunisian products (Tunisia’s third largest manufacturing sector) in the U.S. market.
