Greece’s food and tourism industries unite to promote ‘True Greece’


Top food producers, tourism experts and Chefs from Greece gathered in a slightly muddy Regents Park to show visitors to the annual Taste of London festival that when it comes to getaways and gastronomy, no one does it quite like the Greeks!


The 50,000 show goers who braved the showers were treated to Greek delicacies, fun and festivities as the 22 ‘Taste like Greece’ exhibitors brought a little Mediterranean sun to North London.

At a special press and industry event Alkiviadis Kalabokis, Director of the Hellenic Foreign Trade Board, reassured the media about Greece’s strong position in Global gastronomy while Kyriaki Boulasidou, Director of the Greek National Tourism Organisation in London, announced the launch of the ‘True Greece campaign’. This initiative encourages everyone from tourists and travel industry figures to celebrities and media to visit, post good news stories about Greece and help show that the country remains a wonderful place to go.
