Taste France, a brand launched by The French Ministry of Agriculture and Food from France in 2020, represents the French way of life across the globe. It aims to allow more people to experience food and beverage of French origin through its events and platforms and to convey the full range of advantages of France’s culinary heritage: tremendous know-how in agriculture, agri-food, and gastronomy; high health, safety, and environmental standards, and its firm’s talent for innovation.
From 17 to 18 December 2022, market visitors will be able to wander through Asia Society Hong Kong Center's Admiralty campus and enjoy entertainment as well as discovering food and beverages of French origin.
“After the global situation of the past years, we are so excited to bring back the French festivities to Hong Kong,” says Augustin Missoffe, incharge for the implementation of the Taste France campaign in Asia by Sopexa. “This year, the French Christmas Market aims to reinforce its position as a memorable event for foodies and lovers of the French art de vivre. The event aims to cultivate a showcase of all things delicieux and will be designed to be reminiscent of the traditional French market, complete with stalls and delectable food, and wines.”
Throughout the two-day event, several demonstrations will take place. Visitors will be invited to explore wines, non-alcoholic beverages, cheeses, seafood and specialty foods, and participate in French-inspired activities. The yuletide celebration, with its combination of colourful décor, and sweet and savoury food and drink, will create the perfect ambiance for merrymaking with friends and family whilst indulging in a variety of activities, old-world confections, seasonal entertainment, and collaborations with partners who will be putting forward French specialty products and ingredients.
