In the "PostEurop" united post office organizations "EUROPA" stamps give change about "catering trade" in this year. The catering trade is a firm component of our life. A meal in the restaurant with the family or with friends is today one of the most popular leisure activities.
The tradition hands back to go eating outward thousands of years: Already in early China not only fresh goods became on markets, but also prepared meals sells. And the Symposion, the guest meal of the Greek Antique ones, was a meeting place for cultural presentations and political discussions. The meaning of the benefit of meals and beverages is to be read off also from the term "catering trade". Because its actual meaning after the Greek-French sense of word reads "regulation for the care of the belly".
