Austrian food producers have been presenting their products on the international markets with the help of ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA - very successfully.  In 2006 exports from food and drinks rose by 9.9% to EUR 6.6 billion.

Austrian companies from the food industry, along with their products, have a good reputation across the world, but were still to improve brand awareness. For this reason, ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA organised trade fairs abroad for Austrian companies in this industry with buyers from retail chains, wholesalers, importers and gastronomy representatives. And they have been extremely successful. Food exports to Eastern Europe increased by 18.1% from 2005 to 2006, after food presentations with a total of 356 representatives of the Austrian food industry over a four-year period. The food industry will now focus on presenting to markets further afield in the coming years. 2006 saw total food and drink exports reach a value of EUR 6.6bn. That is up 9.9% on 2005 figures.
