Business Matching with Japan Food Expo Delegation

A Japanese Food Expo delegation visited the Chamber on 17 August where they were welcomed by Behzad Mirzaei, Chairman of the Asia & Africa Committee and members from trading, logistics and F&B sectors. The delegation presented members with unique local food products such as pink wasabi and sake, green mikan tea, Shirataki udon and seafood fish skewers, most of which were not yet distributed or sold in Hong Kong. The delegation last visited the Chamber in late 2017, after which several deals were made between Hong Kong importers and Japanese producers to bring products to Hong Kong.
