European Union conducts ‘Restaurant Week’ in Mumbai

As part of its ‘Tastes of Europe’ campaign, the European Union is hosting a restaurant week in Mumbai from 6th – 12th September 2014


With it’s ‘Restaurant Week’ scheduled from 6th – 12th September in Mumbai, the European Union (EU) is all set to take consumers on a European gastronomic trip.

Held as an extension of its ‘Tastes of Europe’ campaign, the ‘Restaurant Week’ aims to increase consumer awareness about European dishes, ingredients and flavours in India.

Involving a collaboration with high end restaurants in Mumbai catering to European cuisine, the ‘Restaurant Week’ will see these restaurants whip out dishes guaranteed to tease Indian taste buds  and in turn grow an appreciation for European produce, dairy products and wine.

About the European Union (EU):

The EU which consists of 28 countries has the world’s largest economy and its third largest population, after China and India.

Though richly diverse, the countries that make up the EU (its ‘Member States’) are all committed to the same basic values: peace, democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights.

They have set up common institutions so that decisions on matters of joint interest can be made democratically at European level.

By creating a frontier-free single market and a single currency (the euro), which has been adopted by 18 Member States, the EU has given a significant boost to trade and employment.

It is also at the forefront of policies on sustainability.

 EU-India relations

Over 50 years the EU and India have worked together to reduce poverty, prevent disasters, expand trade, and promote joint research in energy, health, agriculture and many other fields of mutual  interest.
