EU agri-food business delegation to China to facilitate European agricultural food and beverage exports

Join the EU agri-food business delegation to China

EU Agriculture Commissioner Janusz Wojciechowski will be visiting China on 21-26 April 2024, accompanied by a business delegation of senior representatives from the EU agri-food sector, in conjunction with the European Commission’s presence at Anuga Select China fair with an EU pavilion. The purpose of this visit is to facilitate European agricultural food and beverage exports to China and expand their presence on this market.

The Commission invites business representatives of the following sectors to apply:

  • meat products
  • chocolate, cereals and pasta
  • confectionery and bakery
  • dairy
  • wines, beer and spirits
  • olive oil and vegetable oils
  • infant food and baby milk powder
  • geographical indication products
  • commodities such as grains, oilseeds and animal feed, pet food
  • fruits and vegetables

How to participate?

Practical questions can be addressed to the Research Executive Agency at the following email address: REA-AGRI-EVENTSatec [dot] europa [dot] eu (REA-AGRI-EVENTS[at]ec[dot]europa[dot]eu).

The Commissioner would like to include in his business delegation European and national producers’ organisations and companies from all EU Member States with strong export potential that preferably have not participated in such EU projects before. The final selection of the business representatives will be based on product and geographical balance of the delegation. In this context the candidates’ representativeness of a given sector, their capacity to conduct international business and accessing challenging markets will also be considered.

The visit to China will concentrate on providing market intelligence in the food and beverage sector, business-to-business activities, as well as retail and site visits. The programme of the business delegation will provide the representatives of the European agri-food sector with an excellent platform to discover the Chinese market and to make direct business contacts both in Shanghai as well as in Shenzen (mainly at Anuga Select China fair).

The costs of flights and hotels are covered by the participants themselves, but all business events from the official programme, including local transport and the transit between Shanghai and Shenzen, will be covered by the European Commission.
