Launching Event: Washington DC

Invitation washington DC

Our Opening Event for the CATALAN GOURMET USA group took place at one of the most popular Spanish restaurants in town: the Jaleo Restaurant in Crystal City, at 2250 Crystal Dr, Arlington, VA 22202. Professionals from the area were able to delight their taste buds at our tasting on Monday April 22nd from 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

We invited food importers and distributors, reps, wholesalers, gourmet stores, restaurants
and other professionals of the food industry that tried some unique and wonderful new
products, never before brought to the US Market.

The owners and representatives of the 6 participating companies in CATALAN GOURMET USA traveled to Washington for the Food Tasting and Presentation event. During the two following days of the event (April 23rd & 24th), one-to-one meetings with the Catalan producers were held. We also organized a Retail Tour visiting the most interesting retail stores of the city, including stores like Whole Foods, Wagshal’s, Safeway and Dean & Deluca.
