Service Category:


The exhibition FOOD-IN 2011 in the Sports Hall in Akureyri is this coming weekend. Thousands of visitors are expected to the exhibition - a sales exhibition with over forty participants - professional and player competitions in cooking - free admission!

The exhibition FOOD-IN will be held in Akureyri for the fifth time this coming weekend. The exhibition has been held every two years and was last held in 2009. The number of visitors was 12-14 thousand and another one is expected this year. There are more booths than at the last show and the exhibition area is even bigger. As before, admission is free and it is emphasized that this is a sales exhibition, so it is possible to make a good purchase from exhibitors. Eiríkur Björn Björgvinsson, Mayor of Akureyri, will formally open the exhibition, which will be open at 11-17 on Saturday and Sunday.

Great variety
It is safe to say that MATUR-INN 2011 is a highlight in Nordic food culture. The exhibition is held by the company Mat úr Eyjafjörður in good collaboration with Þingeyska matarbúrið and Matarkistuna Skagafjörður. Behind these companies are food producers large and small, restaurants, tourism companies, shops and service companies - all parties that have in common that food is involved in their work. About forty people will take part in the exhibition FOOD-IN 2011 and there will be a great variety. 

Fun cooking competitions and autumn market
There will be a competition in cooking in the kitchen area of the exhibition. For example, nationally known individuals will compete in salmon dishes, chefs will compete for the best mackerel dish, bakers will compete in desserts and finally restaurants will compete in flatbread making.

The exhibition will feature exhibition stands for companies and food culture associations, a marketplace where, for example, it will be possible to buy fresh autumn crops and jams of various kinds.

In parallel with the exhibition, there will be a furniture exhibition in the lobby of the Sports Hall, and on Saturday a giant barbecue will be lit outside, where a 24-hour barbecue of beef carcass will begin. It will then be ready on Sunday and will give guests the opportunity to taste the military names.

On Sunday, the company's entrepreneur award Matar from Eyjafjörður will also be presented, but they have been a regular part of the company's exhibitions so far.

On the occasion of the exhibition, eight restaurants in Akureyri will have a special menu this week, where they will each export local ingredients in their own way. It can be said that food and food adventures will be the theme of Eyjafjörður and Norðurland all this week and will culminate this weekend.
