Fancy Food Fair

Fancy food fair DC 2011Birgitta travelled to the Fancy Food Fair in Washington, DC. This huge fair ran from 10th to 12th July, and featured 180,000 products by 2,400 exhibitors from more than 80 countries. She was invited by Food Ireland to feature our products at their stand.

In the picture you can see Pat Coleman of Food Ireland, importer and distributor in the USA based in New York, Birgitta Hedin Curtin of the Burren Smokehouse, and Karen Coyle of Bord Bia New York. Birgitta also met with Ambassador to the States Michael Collins and First Secretary Department of Agriculture, Dr John Dardis at a Kerrygold product launch.

For us, it was a good way of meeting existing and new contacts in the United States where at least one exciting customer is about to come onboard. But we will cackle about this later when the egg is laid...
