Hanoi (VNA) – Excellent taste and eye-catching packages have made products of the Huu Nghi Confectionery Joint Stock Company come in favour of visitors at the International Exhibition & Conference on Food & Beverage Products, Processing, Packaging Machinery & Allied Technologies (FoodPro 2017).

The Huu Nghi company is among 250 enterprises from 16 countries attending the event which ran from November 23-25 in Dhaka capital, Bangladesh.

The company brought along various kinds of cakes to the exhibition to introduce made-in-Vietnam products to international friends as well as grasp taste of consumers in Bangladesh. This is an important move that helps the confectioner to expand its export market to South Asia.

Visiting the company’s booth, Vietnamese Ambassador to Bangladesh Tran Van Khoa lauded its participation in the FoodPro while stressing that the Bangladesh market poses huge potential and challenges for Vietnamese confectionary products, thus Vietnamese businesses need to be plucky and make concerted efforts.

Chairman of the Bangladesh Agro-Processors’ Association (BAPA) AFM Fakhrul Islam Munshi said that he was impressed by Vietnamese confectionary products and expressed his hope that Vietnamese food companies will enhance investment and enlarge business in Bangladeshi market.

Attending the FoodPro 2017, the Huu Nghi company had chance to meet 100 food corporations from Bangladesh, opening opportunities for the company to boost exports to the South Asian country.

As part of efforts to support Vietnamese businesses to enter the Bangladeshi market, the Vietnamese Embassy in Bangladesh and the Bangladesh-Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry will organise Vietnam-Bangladesh trade fair next year. The event is expected to help Vietnamese businesses meet their trade partners and nudge Vietnamese products closer to Bangladeshi consumers.-VNA
