My company operates 10 medium-size supermarkets in Kazakhstan and we specialise in low-market FMCGs. Since Kazakhstan joined the WTO, it has become easier and cheaper to import from outside the region. Products such as ready-to-use food, snacks, dried fruits and pre-packaged food with a long shelf life are quite popular in the country now. I have come to the Food Expo 2018 to look for these products and for new suppliers. Through the HKTDC Business Matching service, I have found two companies with a good chance of cooperation.There is a Japanese exhibitor whose gluten-free pasta I am interested in, and a Portuguese exhibitor that offers the olive oil I want. This is my first time coming to Hong Kong. I like the scale of the fair. I can find a wide variety of products here and it is very convenient for sourcing FMCGs.
