During the first days of the visit, the guests from the UAE visited poultry production plants in which high quality poultry, also the QAFP-labelled one, is produced. The visitors could see with their own eyes the high standards used in the European plants.

A business seminar was the event which closed the mission of the UAE representatives, it was held on 30 November 2017 as the event accompanying the Central Agricultural Fair which at that time was taking place in Nadarzyn. During the panel section, the Polish representatives/experts on poultry industry presented the most important information about high quality poultry, the QAFP system, and potential of the EU exports.
