Portugal has so much more to offer than just sun, beaches and idyllic scenery. Its strategic geographical position, with more than 1,000 kilometres of coastline and a mild climate, plus its modern, innovative productive sector have made the European nation a major exporter of guaranteed quality foods worldwide.
Fruit, vegetables, fish, canned goods, meats, oils, confectionary and other quality products now reach 185 international markets. With an export value of 6.5 billion euros in 2019 and excellent forecasts for 2020, the Portuguese agri-food sector is committed to maintaining the strong growth rate it has experienced over the last decade, currently representing more than 10% of all Portuguese exports.
PortugalFoods, Inovcluster, Agrocluster do Ribatejo and Portugal Fresh make up the Portuguese Agrofood Cluster, encompassing the whole quality food export offering, which will be promoted at the first edition of the Digital Agrifood Summit Portugal event that is scheduled to take place on 20-23 January 2021.
The Digital Agrifood Summit Portugal is being organized with the support of the Secretary of State for Internationalization, the Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture, AICEP (Portugal Global – Portuguese Trade & Investment Agency) and FIPA (Federation of Portuguese Agrifood Industries).
The digital event is planned as a global meeting that will include a virtual showroom of quality products on a platform on which Portuguese exhibitors can hold business meetings with buyers from more than twenty countries around the world. At the same time there will be themed workshops and an area dedicated to current trends. Everything is geared to give international buyers a much closer insight into the unique properties of Portuguese foodstuffs.
