At ProWine, visitors will have the opportunity to meet 600 companies from 35 countries representing every major wine growing region of the world.
Demand for imported foods, particularly amongst the affluent younger generation continues to grow rapidly in China. A rarity just 10 years ago, but today imported foods can be easily found in most retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and online from B2B and B2C platforms. Chinese buyers increasingly want the quality offered by imported foods and are prepared to pay a higher price for it. At FHC China the focus is only on imported food and beverages. All exhibitors are international producers and brands or importers and distributors of imported product. Consequently, the exhibition offers Chinese trade buyers the widest possible range of imported foods at one venue and over three days. Providing the opportunity for face to face negotiation with international principals and the chance to find many new products not available in the China market.
For just three days only in November, FHC China 2016 is open for trade visitors only. Business visitors are welcome from food and wine importers and distributors; retailers; hotels; restaurants & bars and institutional caterers.
FHC China 2016 has attracted 33 regional and National pavilions, the largest this year is from Turkey, occupying over 1,000 square metres with some 58 companies offering unique national food products.
