Product highlights range from frozen food to rice, biscuits and halal food, offering international buyers a lot of choices. Buyers are forthcoming and our participating companies are looking positively to explore new business development.

“Japanese food is very popular among consumers in Hong Kong so Japanese food suppliers are always eager to expand presence here. HKTDC Food Expo is an exciting trade event every year for Japanese food companies to increase sales in Hong Kong and penetrate the Chinese mainland market. We are making a strong presence again this year with 133 food suppliers at the JETRO pavilion, plus another 180 Japanese companies showcasing in the vicinity. Product highlights include organic and health-conscious food while some Japanese suppliers have fine-tuned their products like noodles and sushi specifically to suit Hong Kong consumers’ preferences. We can find something new and exciting at Food Expo every year and there are so many Chinese mainland buyers. That’s why we would like to exhibit here year after year. This is an excellent place for Japanese food suppliers to promote products and find buyers.

Buyer Feedback

“Arena is a leading restaurant operator in Indonesia. We currently operate 30 restaurants under different brands offering a variety of Asian food from Malaysian to Indonesian, Thai, Japanese and Korean cuisines. This is our first-ever visit to the HKTDC Food Expo to find new suppliers of sauces, pastas and kitchen equipment. So far, we’ve found three to four potential suppliers including a Thai exhibitor for chili sauce and a Polish exhibitor for pasta. Some halal food showcased at the Expo also looks appealing. We’ve seized the chance to find new products and understand new market trends here. This is a good sourcing place.

“In business for 103 years, Save On Foods is the biggest supermarket chain in western Canada running a total of 162 supermarkets. The number of Canadians of Asian origin is growing continuously, spurring the demand for Asian food. This is our third-time visit to the HKTDC Food Expo to source more Asian food options. On the first day of the exhibition, I’ve already found five new suppliers. They include three Japanese exhibitors for biscuits, snacks and beverages, and two Chinese mainland suppliers for sesame oil and snacks. Orders will be placed on a container basis. The Expo is an impressive exhibition of international standards in a big scale.”

“This is the second time that the India Trade Promotion Organisation has organised the Indian Pavilion at the Hong Kong International Tea Fair. Due to favourable buyer response, the number of Indian tea exhibitors has increased to six this year. As tea products from India have distinct aroma and flavour, the fair provides an ideal platform for Indian tea companies to promote their products to international buyers. Indian tea exhibitors are showcasing a great variety of tea products such as black tea, oolong tea, white tea, green tea, fruit tea and herbal tea. A good number of buyers have visited the Indian pavilion on the first day of the fair. As Hong Kong is an important tea trading hub in the region, we’ll bring a larger delegation to participate in next year’s fair.

Exhibitor Feedback

“We see great potential of Ceylon tea on the Chinese mainland and in Hong Kong because consumers in these two markets. That’s why the Sri Lanka Tea Board has led tea producers from Sri Lanka to participate in the Hong Kong International Tea Fair for the 10th consecutive year to promote Ceylon tea and to help them to expand their business in these markets. We have brought nine tea producers to this year’s fair and they have been granted the Ceylon Tea Lion logo and the Ozone Friendly Pure Ceylon Tea certification by our board. The Hong Kong International Tea Fair is a specialised trade fair for the tea industry in this region which attracts many distributors. Our exhibitors are happy with the results on the first day of the fair and expect to meet with even more buyers from the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong in the next two days.

Buyer Feedback

“Headquartered in Denmark and with a branch office in Azerbaijan, Fikster is an importer and wholesaler of tea products. I have come to the Hong Kong International Tea Fair for the first time to look for quality products to meet the needs of consumers in Azerbaijan. I have found a lot of quality products here and identified 20 potential suppliers from the Chinese mainland, Sri Lanka and Taiwan for the supply of oolong tea, Ceylon tea and black tea respectively. After tasting their products, I’ll buy one tonne of tea products from different suppliers.
Fizuli Jabbarov, Director, Fikster, Azerbaijan

“Established in 1997, JDX Tea is a tea wholesaler, distributor and retailer in Malaysia. JDX Tea is our own brand. This is our first time visiting the Hong Kong International Tea Fair to look for new products. We have already talked to 12 suppliers and found three potential suppliers from Taiwan and Korea for the supply of high-mountain oolong tea, citrus tea, red ginseng tea and tea snacks. We have bought HK$3,000 worth of samples from them and will ask our dealers to join a tea-tasting meeting and assess the market potential of these tea products. We’ll place trial orders to test market response. ”
