Phaff Export Marketing will organize a virtual trade mission and showcase at GASTROFOOD in Poland. Food vendors from the southern US states can join this activity. This activity is commissioned by the Southern United States Trade Association (SUSTA).


SUSTA helps small to medium-sized companies with their first steps into new export markets. Together with the Departments of Agriculture of the 14 southern states and Puerto Rico, SUSTA promotes the export of high-value food and agricultural products.



The GASTROFOOD Trade Fair for Food and Drinks for the catering industry, together with the international trade fair of hotel and catering equipment HORECA, has been organized for nearly 28 years. This trade fair is one of the most important events for the hotel and catering industry in Poland.

The trade show will take place in the first week of November 2021.

Products of focus for this trade show are, among others:

  • Frozen foodstuffs, ice creams;
  • Meats, including smoked meats and venison;
  • Fish and frutti di mare;
  • Dairy products;
  • Cereals, noodles, flour-based products;
  • Baked foods;
  • Fruits and vegetables (fresh, dried, preserved);
  • Fatty products;
  • Sweets and confectionery;
  • Soft drinks;
  • Coffee, tea.

Phaff Export Marketing will represent participating SUSTA companies on this trade show. All participants will get a place in the 30 sqm SUSTA booth, where their products will be displayed.

This allows SUSTA companies to present themselves at this trade show and to the Polish market, without traveling and from the comfort of their home or office.

Please check the website of GASTROFOOD Poland for more information.

Virtual meetings

Next to the participation at GASTROFOOD Poland, Phaff Export Marketing will establish virtual B2B meetings between food buyers in Poland. Each meeting will be around 30 minutes. This can be seen as the first introduction between both parties. If interested, a follow-up meeting can be scheduled.

These meetings will take place in the week after the trade show.
