Nordic Food Day

Business Sweden Hong Kong had its first Nordic Food Day in cooperation with Finland in August 2018.

The participating companies started off with a store check at leading high-end supermarkets and specialty shops focusing on green and organic products in Hong Kong to get familiarized with the market.

Swedish companies listened to presentations from Invest HK, and Kampery Group which owns the largest retail chain in Hong Kong providing organic and natural products. The menu of the Nordic Lunch was designed to include products from the participating companies.

The Nordic Food Day ended with a B2B match making session. Over 90 participants, including buyers and traders in food industry, met with 11 Swedish and Finnish companies and tasted Nordic cuisine.

Natural & Organic Products Asia (NOPA)

The focus on organic food and beverage products continued at the NOPA fair. One of the Try Swedish exhibitors, SweCheese AB won the “Best New Organic Food” award at NOPA, proving the relevance of Swedish organic food in the world.
