On his first trade mission, Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said NSW had a world-class reputation as a producer of exceptional, fresh, healthy and premium food, well-suited for the Hong Kong and Chinese markets.
“The 2015 HKTDC Food Expo is a fantastic opportunity for Hong Kong and Chinese buyers to see and taste NSW fine food and wine and for NSW producers to generate new business partnerships and expand further into the international market,” Mr Ayres said.
“This is the second year NSW has exhibited and the State Government has again provided a custom-designed NSW Pavilion located in the Trade Hall.”
At the NSW Pavilion, the Minister will participate in a cooking demonstration with renowned international chefs Martin Yan (from Yan Can Cook) and James Viles (from Biota Dining in Bowral).
Hong Kong is Australia’s largest export market for seafood and fruit and the NSW Government recognises the tremendous potential in this growing relationship.
“NSW is blessed with a good climate, rich soils and knowledgeable farmers using the latest technology and methods. The Expo provides the perfect opportunity to show the Asian market what exciting innovations NSW food growers and manufacturers are achieving,” Mr Ayres added.
NSW companies participating at the event are Alpine Berry Farm, Australia’s Oyster Coast, Coco Roselle Pty Ltd, Food to Nourish/ BioNourish, Hunter Heritage Gourmet Foods Pty Ltd, Indigiearth, Lively Linseed Products, Pukara Estate, Rystone Australian Organic + Extra Virgin Olive Oils, Vince Russell’s Nut Butter Mill, Wine In A Glass Pty Ltd and YesYouCan.
