As one of the prestigious and well- known canning fruit companies with Korean partners, the presence of Westfood at Seoul Food Fair 2019 has affirmed the company’s brand in this market.

COEX is also a subsidiary of Korea International Trade Association, which is the largest and leading exhibition organizer in Korean exhibition industry and owns many large Trade Centers in Korea.

For the canned fruit export industry in Vietnam, Korea is always a potential market, with a large purchasing demand, with a population of about 51 million people, a GDP of more than 1,500 billion USD, ranked at 20th in the world and average income reached 41,000 USD, ranked at 27th in the world. Besides, with a cold temperate climate, Korea imports a lot of fruits, each consumer consumes about 60 kg/year. However, domestic supply only meets 64% demand, so Korea has to import more fruit from abroad.

By attending Seoul Food Fair this year, Westfood not only strengthens its brand but also continues to introduce its images and products to new partners in this market.
