Hong Kong Food and Wine Mission to Italy
WHAT: The five-day mission will explore potential business partnerships for Hong Kong companies in Italy.
WHEN: 24 June-2 July 2017
WHO: Hong Kong companies in the food and wine trading and re-export industry, gourmet food companies, as well as hospital industry firms sourcing new products will take part in the mission.
Delegates from about 12 Hong Kong companies are expected to join the mission that will feature meetings with relevant local industry groups, including chambers of commerce as well as food and wine-related associations from the two regions.
WHY: Food and wine from Italy are highly regarded in the lucrative Chinese mainland market, with Hong Kong serving as Asia’s food and wine hub, particularly for the mainland.
The programme will include business-matching meetings with local suppliers and exporters, networking receptions, as well as visits to food companies and wineries.
To facilitate business-matching meetings, food and wine showcases will be arranged for the delegation to taste local food and wine products.
WHERE: Sicily and Apulia, Italy
