Hungarian stand at Paris farm show draws more than 20,000

More than 20,000 visitors came to the Hungarian stand at the Paris International Agricultural Show on February 19-27, Attila Fodor, communications director for supermarket chain CBA, which helped organise Hungary's presence at the fair, told MTI on Monday.

About 7,500 visitors made purchases at the stand during the fair, Fodor said.

For the first time, Hungary had its own stand at the fair. Forty-seven Hungarian producers showed 327 products there.

Hungary's presence at the fair was organised by CBA, state farm product marketing agency Agrarmarketing Centrum and state tourism agency Magyar Turizmus. The cost of exhibiting at the fair came to more than HUF 100 million, to which Agrármarketing Centrum contributed HUF 40 million.

Strong foreign demand for quality Hungarian products has inspired CBA to plan "Hungaricum" stores in Paris, Berlin, Brussels and London, Fodor said.
