Exhibitor Feedback

“HKTDC Food Expo is the largest fair of its kind in Asia, providing a perfect place for Japanese food companies to promote products and expand presence especially in Hong Kong. This is our ninth-year participating in the Expo. We have brought together a total of 92 companies to showcase a great variety of food items this year and about half of them are participating in the fair for the first time. We are able to attract a good flow of buyers visiting our booths again. Hong Kong is the largest export market of Japanese food and the sales continue to grow this year. The city is an international hub in Asia enabling companies to extend presence worldwide. The Expo is a must-attend trade event every year for us to showcase and promote food products. We’re pleased to be able to strengthen our sales and presence through this excellent platform.”
Takuro Wanami, Director, Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries and Food Business Promotion Division, JETRO, Japan (Booth: 5B-C02)
“Indonesia is hosting a pavilion at the Food Expo this year to promote Indonesian food products to different buyers. The Expo offers a good platform to showcase our products and enhance people’s awareness about the quality of Indonesian food. Three Indonesian food companies have joined us to promote a diversity of products from coconut sugar to yogurt drinks, snacks and milk drinks. We’ve attracted a good amount of interest from various buyers, especially those from Mainland China and Hong Kong. They really love our food items and we expect to establish business relationship with them. The Expo is a great trade event drawing a large number of buyers from different parts of the world to explore business development here. This is a successful exhibition.”
Iqbal S Shofwan, Consul (Trade), Indonesia Consulate General in Hong Kong (Booth: 5C-E36)
“California is making a stronger presence at Food Expo this year bringing 12 food companies from California to showcase a variety of specialty foods and beverages such as olive oils, avocado oils, confectioneries, wines, chocolate, almonds, walnuts, healthy snacks and prunes. The feedback has been very good. We’ve met with a lot of buyers from Hong Kong and Mainland China. They expressed keen interest in our products. It’s only the first day of exhibition but we are optimistic about developing business with the new contacts. Our participating companies are generally happy and feel positive about the new business opportunities they’ve explored here.”
Jeffrey Williamson, Director, California State Trade Expansion (California STEP), USA (Booth: 5C-B16)

Buyer Feedback

“With a history of 65 years, Tenshin Hanten operates 13 Chinese restaurants in Japan specialising in Cantonese cuisines. This is my first visit to HKTDC Food Expo to find something new and interesting to enrich our offerings. I have already got in touch with a Hong Kong company producing different kinds of Hong Kong-styled desserts like red bean paste and walnut paste. I expect to introduce these desserts to customers at our restaurants later this year. The Expo is an excellent fair featuring a large number of exhibitors from different places of the world including some Japanese companies from Wakayama, Akita and Aomori prefectures that I’ve never connected before. There is a lot to see and find here. Japanese people love the city of Hong Kong and its food. The Expo is a good place to look for new items.”
Makoto Oh, President, Tenshin Hanten, Japan
“In business for 20 years, we are part of Paris-headquartered Lagardère Group. We are running about 400 stores in Czech Republic selling a wide range of duty free & fashion items, food services and travel essentials likes tobacco and newspapers. I am visiting HKTDC Food Expo for the first time to source food products. So far, I’ve found five new suppliers from Thailand and Sri Lanka through the business matching meetings for various products like juices, dried food, coffee and tea. I also established contact with a Saudi Arabian exhibitor at the fairground and its cake items are very interesting. I will start with trial orders first with them. This is a great fair and I am positive about developing business with the new suppliers.”
Jakub Bureš, COO Food Services, Lagardère Travel Retail, Czech Republic

Exhibitor Feedback

“Fujian is the second largest tea producer and exporter in Mainland China. This is the second time that we have organised the Fujian Pavilion at the Hong Kong International Tea Fair. In view of favourable responses, we have expanded our pavilion this year by increasing the number of exhibitors from 25 to 50. The Fujian Pavilion is showcasing famous teas such as tieguanyin from Anxi, yan tea (rock tea) from Wuyi Mountain, white tea from Fuding and jasmine tea from Fuzhou. Fujian has been active in promoting its tea products to countries along the Belt and Road and Hong Kong acts as an important gateway for us to achieve this objective. The Hong Kong International Tea Fair provides an excellent opportunity for Fujian’s tea companies to introduce their famous teas to Hong Kong people and to promote our tea culture. Apart from organising the Fujian Pavilion at the Hong Kong fair, we are going to set up a permanent tea culture and exhibition centre in Hong Kong soon to further promote Fujian’s famous teas.”
Chen Mingwang, Deputy Director-General, Fujian Provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Mainland China (Booth: 5F-D02)
“The southern part of Pinli County is a major tea producing area in Shaanxi Province which is famous for producing nuwa tea and gynostemma pentaphyllum (jiaogulan tea). This is the fourth time that we have set up a pavilion at the Hong Kong International Tea Fair to promote our tea brands and expand our export business. We have brought together six major tea companies to this year’s fair. The Hong Kong International Tea fair provides a good place for them to meet with International buyers and develop overseas markets. Exports of nuwa tea started to increase last year and we hope that the fair will bring more business opportunities to our exhibitors.”
He Zhonggang, Deputy Director, Pinli County Economic and Trade Bureau, Mainland China (Booth: 5F-A02)

Buyer Feedback

“Established in 1997, our company is a tea importer, producer, wholesaler and exporter in Poland. We blend green tea sencha and gun powder with additional flavours and herbs and supply to tea shops and restaurants in Poland and other European countries. This is my first-time visit to the Hong Kong International Tea Fair. Apart from sourcing green tea sencha and black tea, I am also looking for organic tea which is growing fast in Poland. So far, I have found three potential suppliers of organic tea from Mainland China and five potential suppliers of green tea sencha, black tea, dark tea, ceramic tea pots and cups, as well as tea filters. I will place orders with some of the potential suppliers after the fair. I like the fair very much because I can find a huge variety of tea products. I’ll also look for speciality tea and blooming tea and attend the International Cup Warming event during the fair period.”
Agnieszka Kowal-Rudzka, CEO, The Traditional Tea Company of London, Poland
“Dobrá čajovna is my own tea brand and I supply all kinds of orthodox tea to 40 tea rooms in Europe and the US. Each year, I import 5 to 10 tonnes of teas from different places such as Mainland China and Sri Lanka. This is my second time visiting the Hong Kong International Tea Fair. I have found five potential suppliers of orthodox tea and organic tea through the business matching meetings arranged by the HKTDC. These new contacts are very useful. Tea consumption in the Czech Republic is high and that’s why there are a lot of tea rooms. The demand for speciality teas has been increasing in recent years. I’ll look for speciality tea at the fair.”
Aleš Juřina, Franchisor, Dobrá čajovna, Czech Republic
