FIAL Overseas Buyer Inbound Trade Mission 2019

September 7, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - September 10, 2019 @ 4:00 PM

Calling all food producers — meet international buyers on your doorstep!

Forging close connections to retail buyers is key for your brand. That’s why Food Innovation Australia is partnering with Austrade, AusIndustry and the New South Wales, Tasmanian, and Queensland state governments to bring you this exciting opportunity to meet with international buyers.

What’s the opportunity?
Instead of having to go to an international trade show to meet buyers, we’re bringing them to you! We are touring the country with buyers from Asia, including China and Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. From big supermarket chains like Villa Market in Thailand to independent importers and distributors, this is a unique opportunity for you to meet with buyers from the major Asian markets on your doorstep.

When: 7 – 10 September, 2019
Where: Brisbane, Launceston and Sydney
