How they did it

In May 2017, Sunfresh joined TIQ’s mission to HOFEX, Hong Kong’s premier food and hospitality show.

TIQ coordinated a stand at HOFEX, enabling Queensland producers to showcase their products to thousands of HOFEX visitors. Producers also participated in a Taste of Queensland networking luncheon, and were introduced to a range of potential business partners.

As a result of an introduction during HOFEX, Sunfresh negotiated a deal with a Hong Kong importer.
