Café Liégeois is pleased to be attending the Europe Day celebration, which will take place on May 9th at the European Union Residence in Ottawa, Ontario. More commonly known as the Schuman Declaration, Europe Day is a symbolic date that marks the birth of the European Union.
Why Europe Day?
It all began on May 9th, 1950, when French foreign minister Robert Schuman proposed an establishment of a European Coal and Steal Community (ECSC) between the French and the West Germans. This Community was the first of its kind in Europe, and has become a pivotal moment in the establishment of the European Union. Today, the founding members of this Community (France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxumbourg) make up the European Union.
To celebrate this day, European Union delegations around the world organize conferences, competitions, film festivals and other events.
A new collaboration
We are looking forward to offering our 100% compatible Nespresso® capsules and a selection of our European roasts to the 500 diplomats and business leaders that are expected to attend this celebration in Ottawa. Café Liégeois is proud to be a partner for this event alongside Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and les Relations internationales et Francophonies du Québec.
