According to Vu Ba Phu, director of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT)'s Trade Promotion Agency, the organising board of Vietnam Foodexpo is collaborating with ministries and relevant authorities to support local and foreign firms in connecting with each other, increasing these firms’ competitive capacity in both the local and foreign markets.

Nguyen Phuong Linh, director of Bonie Bee Co., Ltd., stated: “Thanks to joining the annual Vietnam Foodexpo events, Bonie Bee’s honey became popular in both local and foreign markets. The firms’ products are now present in famous supermarkets across South Korea and Japan, thanks to the successful transactions in previous exhibitions.”

According to Vu Dung Thanh, marketing director of Moocos Vietnam Co., Ltd., joining the Vietnam Foodexpo is a great opportunity to introduce Moocos’s products processed from Gac fruit, including Gac fruit oil, frozen Gac puree, and Gac powder, to leading local and foreign distributors.

Last year, Vietnam Foodexpo 2017 lured in 24,000 visitors, including 3,000 foreigners coming from 50 countries and territories across the globe. Besides, more than 3,000 contracts and cooperation agreements were signed at the exhibition.
