The European Union stand will be a celebration of the partnership between the EU and farmers. Our stand will be about agriculture in the EU with a special focus on Ireland. There will be a wide range of Irish products, which have been supported by the EU, on display. Quality and excellence brought to your table by the European Union.


Every day there is plenty to keep you entertained:

Two cookery demonstrations every day using traditional and organic produce from Ireland with lots of tasting opportunities.

Talks from farmers about their experiences and the benefits and opportunities that they have gotten from European initiatives.

Children will be encouraged to eat more fruit and vegetables with the Food Dudes games and the EU School Fruit Scheme.

Promotion and display of mushrooms and organic food, because what is good for nature is good for you. Mushrooms will be given away every evening from 4.00 pm.

Lots of prizes to be won with games and quizzes to test your knowledge of agriculture, food and the environment.

A wide range of publications on current EU agricultural topics and the EU in general.

And of course there will be an expert from the European Commission on Tuesday who will be only too happy to answer any questions that you may have on agriculture or other topics.


You can find us in Block 2, Row L, Stand 349.
