Description

Building on the highly successful trade mission last year to Food & Hotel China (FHC) in Shanghai, join the Department for International Trade (DIT) for this Northern Powerhouse Trade Mission to FHC 2018.

This mission is ideal for all businesses across the food and drink sector and is one of many initiatives encouraging growth across the Northern Powerhouse. The visit will commence on Saturday 10th November 2018, flying from the UK to Shanghai, with delegates returning to the UK on the 18th of November.

The programme will include taking businesses to FHC China – China’s Global Food and Hospitality Expo with additional events and showcase opportunities provided to bring further exposure to their products on an international platform with the view to trading internationally.

Why attend?
China is the largest grocery market in the world. UK food and drink products are recognised for their provenance, heritage, quality and safety, a primary concern for Chinese consumers. With a growing middle class willing to spend more money on quality food from trusted sources, as well as a growing trend to buy imported food and drink products as gifts for Chinese festivals, now is the time to investigate how to export to this exciting market.

The benefits of the programme:

• Gain a cost-effective insight in to a key trading market with opportunities to exhibit products
• Bespoke events to showcase and build awareness of your products
• Opportunities to meet with distributors, agents and online marketplaces
• Logistical support for shipping of samples and products
• In-market support by DIT China and China Britain Business Council
• Mission support from experienced sector specialist (Chris Jewitt) and market specialist (John Jenkinson)

"With DIT's support, we joined the trade mission to Shanghai last year. Their team guided us through this whole process - right down to arranging transport to and from the venue - and we came back with literally hundreds of new business contacts. Having the chance to work with DIT has been invaluable and I doubt we'd be launching in China so soon after establishing the company if it weren’t for their guidance.”

Lukas Passia, Managing Director and Co-founder, NOVELTEA
