Discover the “Exotic Taste of Europe” photography exhibit at the Jardin des Plantes botanical garden in Paris from October 25th to November 4th.
The “Exotic Taste of Europe” photography exhibit presents farm products from Europe’s ultra-peripheral regions (UPRs) such as Guadeloupe and Martinique (France), Madeira (Portugal) and the Canary Islands (Spain). Through the many photographs, visitors can discover how UPR agricultural products such as bananas, grapes, avocados and tomatoes are grown.
This travelling exhibit is part of a three-year information campaign co-funded by the European Union and initiated by associations of European banana farmers in Guadeloupe, Martinique, Madeira and the Canary Islands.
This campaign aims to raise European consumers’ awareness of the quality of farm products from Europe’s UPRs and of the European label that guarantees their origin. It also seeks to highlight the importance of farming for the economy and the environment in these regions.
The exhibit will also travel to Madrid, Lisbon, Brussels, Warsaw and Berlin between October and November 2018.
