Gulfood 2021: Estonia – pure air. clean water. fresh food

Estonia – pure air. clean water. fresh food

Estonian food products are renowned for hailing from the country with the cleanest air in the world, so naturally the emphasis is on ecologically fresh products. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of United Nations has rated Estonian food as the second cleanest in the world. Estonia is also the second largest organic farming country in Europe.

The modern era for Estonian food producers started with the country’s accession to the European Union in 2004, giving a  new lease on life to the entire industry with increased focus on quality and product development.

Estonian food products can be found on over 100 export markets around the globe, while the TOP 5 markets still remain nearby –  Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden, Denmark.

Enterprise Estonia takes already for the fourth time Estonian companies to Gulfood, the world’s largest annual food & beverage trade exhibition.
