Agrokomplex Fair begins in Nitra

A total of 610 exhibitors from 16 countries will promote their products at the Agrokomplex 2007 International Agriculture and Food Fair in Nitra, which opened its doors on August 16.

Running until Monday, August 20, this year's fair is mainly focused on health foods and on quality and tradition in the Slovak food industry.

At the opening ceremony, Agriculture Minister Miroslav Jureňa stated that the Slovak public is interested in food safety, and that as many as 80 percent of people view agricultural subsidies positively.

A new feature at this year's fair is an exposition of bio-foods and Bio-Agrokomplex processing technologies, while renewable energy sources will also be strongly represented.

Meanwhile, 111 agriculture and food products will be awarded with the so-called Quality Brand, while other competitions will form an important part of the fair. TASR
