    The Society of Foreign Consuls in New York, in association with the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in New York, organized the International Food Festival, held at the De Lamar Mansion. Due to the nature of similar topics—the promotion of food and culture—the Organicity Business Seminar was also held the same day, devoted to the subject of organic food.

    The Society of Foreign Consuls in New York, chaired by Diana Zhgenti, the Consul General of Georgia in New York, unites consuls from the New York area. The organization's goal is to work together and promote the culture of each Member State. The co-organizer of this year's event was Maciej Golubiewski, Consul General of the Republic of Poland in New York, who is also the treasurer of the Society. The event was an opportunity for the consuls to get to know each other, to exchange ideas, as well as to discuss the current diplomatic environment and how to better promote the cuisine and culture of their own country.

     

    In addition to presenting a national dish in an original and modern rendition, Poland also presented a short piano recital. The works of Chopin and Paderewski were performed by Philip Kwoka, a young pianist and executive director of the Bronx Conservatory of Music, who also received an Honorable Mention at the Kosciuszko Foundation’s 66th Chopin Competition. Other cultural presentations were also performed by dance groups from Mexico, India, Colombia and Bangladesh.

     

    Due to the nature of similar topics that day, the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in New York combined the meeting of the Society with the Organicity Business Seminar, in which the chairmen and representatives of the Chambers and Associations and producers promoting organic food took part. The seminar was organized in cooperation with the Center for the Promotion of the National Chamber of Commerce, whose president is Bożena Wróblewska.

     

    The Organicity Project was founded to increase competition and consumption of European organic products in the United States of America and Asian countries. The Project’s main goals are to promote European high-quality organic products, increase global awareness and create a network of contacts between producers, manufacturers, buyers and consumers. The seminar was an opportunity for the exchange of views and a chance for cooperation of representatives staying and residing in New York.
