Austrade invites new-to-market exporters to participate in the 3rd annual Australian Food & Beverage and Consumer Products showcase to be held in Seoul during 10-11 April 2017. (right after Food and Hotel Indonesia 2017, which takes place 5-8 April). The program is designed to maximise potential business opportunities.
The previous two showcases held in 2015 and 2016, resulted in positive commercial outcomes for Australian exporters. This year we are expanding consumer products to cope with the rising ecommerce sales in Korea with an annual growth rate of 30 percent by 2018. South Korea is home to the third largest retail e-commerce market in the Asia Pacific and is the seventh-largest worldwide.
Australian food, beverage and consumer products (including cosmetics and nutraceuticals) are gaining renewed interest as they become more competitive due to tariff reductions gained under the Korea-Australia Free Trade Agreement (KAFTA).
