A tasty slice of Switzerland at Expo Milano 2015

expo

Switzerland’s theme at Expo Milano 2015 focuses on the scarcity of food resources in the world. It is set up to emphasise not just our limited resources but to give us a clearer sense of our own consumption habits. Whilst the entire setting is beautifully put together with Switzerland’s mountainscape set out in miniature, the whole concept is designed to show the flip side of abundance.

There are four towers full of local foods which visitors are free to eat as they go, however there is a deeper meaning here as to exceed the limit means depriving other visitors of the food…

Certainly food for thought for all of us consumers….

The food theme continues into the Italian Pavillion with stunning displays… and certainly with the message still in our minds that we need to be very aware of our dwindling resources, there is a greater sense of respect as we gaze up at the wealth of produce around us…
