“This is our fifth-year participation in the HKTDC Food Expo to promote Japanese livestock products. Beef, pork, chicken, fish, eggs and dairy products are key highlights of exhibition. A new identification system for Wagyu beef has been adopted in Japan since June to ensure the supply of genuine Wagyu. Through the Expo, we are promoting the new system whereas consumers can scan the respective QR code to acquire the particulars of Wagyu such as breed of the cattle and date of slaughter. The feedback is very good. Many buyers have visited our booths to explore business. They appreciate the high quality of Japanese beef and pork. Our showcase also features chicken meat from Yamaguchi prefecture and dairy products from Hokkaido, which have drawn a lot of interest. The Expo is an excellent trading platform to help us promote Japanese livestock products. We will continue to exhibit here for business development.”

Exhibitor Feedback

“We are organising a Fujian pavilion at Food Expo for the second consecutive year for our companies to showcase a wide range of quality products. Special highlight revolves around Fujian snacks with 15 famous Fujian snack producers offering their fine food here. We’ve also brought together 42 companies providing ingredients and beverages as well as 46 tea producers from Fujian. We’re very pleased with the response as many buyers visited our booths. The Expo draws many professional traders to source products every year, opening up new business opportunities. It also enables Hong Kong consumers to taste and purchase food items they like. We expect to generate good results again and the sales volume may exceed last year. Our companies can also take advantage of the platform to learn about the market trends in Hong Kong and other places of the world so as to enhance their capability for business expansion.”
Zeng Jindong, Director, Division of Trade in Services and Commercial Services, Fujian Provincial Department of Commerce, Mainland China (Booth: 3C-B02)
“Indian companies are keen to participate in the HKTDC Food Expo to find new customers and increase export sales. We have been organising the Indian pavilion at the Expo over the years to explore business opportunities. This year, our participating companies are showcasing various products from rice to frozen food, processed meat, bakery & confectionery, canned food, cereals and tea items. The Expo serves as a great platform for Indian food companies to expand business internationally. We are able to get in touch with buyers from Hong Kong, Mainland China and other countries through the fair. The exhibition results have been very good over the past few years. The Expo is an important trading event for us every year.”

This is our fourth-year participation in the HKTDC Food Expo to showcase different varieties of pistachios to grow our business. We’ve met with various customers from Hong Kong and Mainland China. The Expo is a well-attended international fair. It’s getting better and better each year and a lot of exhibitors from different countries are gathering here to explore opportunities. We will definitely come again to exhibit here.”

“Huzhou Yuwei is a rice producer in Huzhou providing a variety of premium-graded rice for customers. Our rice paddy fields span more than 400 mu of land. We currently offer 18 different kinds of rice products. This is our first-year participation in Food Expo to reach out to the international market. We’ve met with some serious buyers from Hong Kong and overseas. They really appreciate the quality of our rice products and we will discuss further for cooperation. The Expo is an excellent platform to promote our organic rice growing and our products to overseas buyers. We’ve received a lot of enquiry. This is a good start to expand our presence internationally.
Wang Luliang, Chairman, Huzhou Yuwei Agricultural Development Co., Ltd, Mainland China (Booth: 3C-B18)
“Huzhou Green Traceability supplies a variety of organic food and drinks items. We are engaged in lotus plantation through an extensive ecological enhancement of over 100 mu of land in Huzhou. We strive to provide something natural and unique for customers. This is our debut at Food Expo to showcase our products such as lotus tea, petal tea, bird’s nest crisp and chamomile & nymphaea tea. We are especially keen to promote our products to Hong Kong customers. The Expo also offers a chance to meet with professional traders for business expansion. The feedback is positive. Some Hong Kong buyers snapped up some of our products immediately. This is a great place to raise our profile and we look forward to explore more opportunities here.

Buyer Feedback

“759 Store is a leading Hong Kong chain store selling groceries and snacks. We have been participating in the Food Expo for several years with a buyer’s booth to source food products. This is a very effective platform to find new suppliers and enrich our product assortments for business expansion. We are here again this year to meet suppliers from different countries, understand new market trends and identify new food items. So far, we have got in touch several companies including a Polish supplier for frozen chicken and a Vietnamese exhibitor for prawns. I am also looking around at the fairground for some health-oriented products. The Expo draws a large number of exhibitors from different parts of the world such as Korea and Kazakhstan, offering a lot of choices. That’s why we come every year.”
Pinky T.K. Lee, Assistant to General Manager, 759 Store, Hong Kong
"Established five years ago, Yapo is a food and drinks company in Russia. We supply a variety of onigili and food products like dried strawberry and dried peach under our own brand. This is my second-year participation in Food Expo to find something new to expand our product range. I am now negotiating with a Vietnamese exhibitor Saigon Import Export and Distribution Co., Ltd for dried banana chips. I expect to place an order up to US$90,000 for the chips. I have also established contact with a Thai company Baan Khanom Thai International Co., Ltd. for their fresh nuts. The Expo is a good fair showing some interesting products. I will certainly come again."
Georgy Zograbyan, Director, Yapo, Russia
"In business since 2001, Auskhmer is the second-largest supplier of food and beverage products in Cambodia. Our products range from ingredients to frozen food, tea, coffee, juice, wines and whiskies in Cambodia. Customers include supermarkets, bakery shops, restaurants and hotels. We are visiting Food Expo for the first time to source new products. We’ve already identified 15 to 20 potential suppliers from Hong Kong, Japan, India, Saudi Arabia, Poland, Sri Lanka and Thailand for a variety of products such as cereals, snacks, juices, sauces, tea and coffee. Orders are expected to involve a 20-foot container of products each. The Expo is a huge exhibition featuring a lot of products for us to choose from. Everything is great and we will definitely visit the fair again."

Exhibitor Feedback

“Longjing was the royal tea in Qing Dynasty and has long been hailed as the ‘Queen of Green Tea’ for its four outstanding features namely green colour, rich fragrance, sweet taste and beautiful shape. Xihu (West Lake) in Hangzhou is a famous place producing Longjing. This is the first time that we have set up a pavilion at the Hong Kong International Tea Fair to promote our Xihu Longjing brand. We have led a delegation of seven companies to exhibit at the fair. As this Tea Fair is an international trade fair, our delegates can take this good opportunity to develop Hong Kong’s tea market and to assess international buyers’ demand for Chinese green tea.”
Xia Yuzhu, Director, Hangzhou Agricultural and Rural Bureau, Mainland China (Booth: 5G-B20)
“Taiwan produces different kinds of teas and it is famous for producing oolong tea. In view of favourable business results at last year’s Hong Kong International Tea Fair, the Taiwan Tea Exporters Association has organised the Taiwan Pavilion at the fair for the second consecutive year. Four Taiwanese tea exhibitors have returned to the fair to promote green tea, black tea, oolong tea, bubble tea and tea gift packs while a new Taiwanese exhibitor is showcasing tea ware. Taiwanese exhibitors are keen to look for overseas buyers and importers and new business opportunities through the fair. As one of the exhibitors in the Taiwan Pavilion, I am happy with the results because I have met with new buyers from Malaysia, Singapore and Russia.”
Hsiu Chen Kao, Chairman, Taiwan Tea Exporters Association and President, Tai Shiang Tea Co., Ltd., Taiwan (Booth: 5F-B20)

Buyer Feedback

“Tai Tai is the largest health tea manufacturer in Mainland China which imports 3,000-5,000 tonnes of tea every year for processing into health tea. With an annual sales turnover of RMB300 million, we sell slimming tea and anti-constipation tea to drug stores throughout Mainland China. I come to the Hong Kong International Tea Fair for the first time to look for health tea, black tea, green tea and jasmine tea. The demand for slimming tea and anti-constipation tea is strong in Mainland China with an annual sales turnover of RMB3 billion because women like slimming tea while elderly people need anti-constipation tea. I am happy to have found eight potential suppliers from India, Laos and Mainland China at the fair. I plan to buy US$1 million worth of black tea from an Indian supplier which can provide quality products at competitive prices.”
Xu Ming, General Manager, Tai Tai Health Products (Changzhou) International Group, Mainland China
“We are selling flavoured tea and traditional Chinese tea under our Kindred Teas brand through our e-commerce platform in Singapore. We also organise tea tasting events and workshops for our corporate customers. This is my first time visiting the Hong Kong International Tea Fair. I am particularly looking for interesting flavours and suppliers who can accept small orders like 50 kilograms or less. I have identified four potential suppliers of flavoured tea from Mainland China and Japan. Compared to the tea fair in Singapore, I can see a greater variety of tea products at the Hong Kong fair. The tea gift market in Singapore is growing as consumers and corporate customers like to buy tea products as gifts. I would like to come again next year to source new flavours for my customers.”
