Theme: ‘Morocco, A Journey of Flavors’

With its simple yet distinctive theme Morocco’s Pavilion is built around sensorial discovery, food and gastronomy, and represents all the diversity of the Country, showing the richness of its food and Visitors can discover the architectural expression of a trip through Morocco, with all the variety of its “terroirs”, its agronomical features and the different cultural traditions from one region to another.
Reminiscent of the earth, its soil, flavors, and scents, visitors first embark on a journey of “taste and discovery” of thesenses, and then one of reason, where Morocco addresses the issues and new challenges of “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” of food and nutrition, for itself and the world.
This entertaining and educational journey, with its animations of Moroccan gastronomy and culture, allows visitors tosee, taste, touch, hear and smell all things new and exotic. Another priority of the journey is to show the world its uses and exploitation of water, a scarce and precious resource, the combination of tradition and modernity applied in soil irrigation, and how Morocco has worked over years to provide its people with access to water.

And finally, visitors can truly enjoy the flavors of Morocco, whether eating at its restaurant or at take-away eatery, or simply musing among its typical produce, such as argan oil, olive oil, saffron, local wines and honey.
