Moscow (VNA) – Twelve Vietnamese enterprises are introducing locally-made food products to the WorldFood Moscow 2016 International Expo which is underway at the ExpoCentre in Moscow, Russia from September 12-15.

Vietnamese booths display a wide range of items, from frozen and canned food to farm products and fresh fruits under the theme of “Vietnamese agriproducts: unique, clean and safe”.

Hoang Van Du, Deputy Director of the Agricultural Trade Promotion Centre under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development ( MARD ), said the expo is a good chance for Vietnamese enterprises to introduce their products to countries in the Eurasian Economic Union.

According to Du, in the context of Russia still imposing a ban to import food from many traditional markets, Vietnamese companies now have a good opportunity to expand their Russian market, which has a purchasing power of 146 million people.

WorldFood Moscow is an annual event and this year it attracted the participation of over 1,500 companies from 62 countries around the world.-VNA
