Partners from the last year's event held in Romania have already confirmed their participation, interested in meeting their counterparts from the Republic of Moldova to develop new partnerships. "CARNEXPO Grill International is an important step made by meat industries from both Romania and the Republic of Moldova and our intention to create a communication platform to promote local products and brands will surely highlight the achievements in this sector. This event's concept will allow participants to exchange ideas with their counterparts from the EU and some other countries around the globe that will lead to clear progress for the meat industry in this region", emphasized Eugen Capră, General Manager, CARNEXPO Grill.

"We are optimistic and confident in the partnerships with the producers from Romania and the Republic of Moldova and we hope that together we will bring as many beneficial solutions as possible," stated Mr Bercea.
The event is designed to add a special flavour to the meat presented on the venue bay pairing it with famous wines from the Republic of Moldova. Already known wineries such Castel Mimi, Cricova, Chateau Vartely, Asconi announced their intention to participate at CARNEXPO Grill International.
The event will have as the main partner the National Association of Meat Processors from the Republic of Moldova and the support of the country's government and local authorities. Two of the main meat producers in the country, Carmez and Aviselect, have confirmed their participation.
"We are constantly trying to demonstrate that we represent an industry that brings added value to the Moldovan economy, with a very large number of employees engaged in meat production. Our association promotes traditional values, quality and performance. We are happy for any kind of collaboration and we are open for any kind of initiatives of this kind, as our industry is currently working to constantly promote products abroad," pointed Sergiu Grădinaru, President of the National Association of Meat Processors.
"I have always argued that every country must protect its national interests, producers and local products, these being an asset of any businessman who is also a patriot, and we are all like that, especially Moldovans. This is our intention to somewhat encourage communication between us. The idea of promoting local producers and gastronomy is welcome and our partners at CARNEXPO Grill have the necessary experience to make a successful event," completed Viorel Cosnicean, Aviselect's General Manager.
