A delegation of over 60 UK companies visited Hong Kong for HOFEX, the leading food and hospitality tradeshow in the Asia-Pacific region, making this the largest ever UK trade mission to Hong Kong ever. The delegation was supported by UK Trade & Investment and was led by four different organisations – FDEA (Food & Drink Exporters Association), EBLEX (English Beef & Lamb Executive), SDI and the Welsh Government. Many of the companies reported good leads and there will now be an intense period of follow up. Other GREAT food and drink events are planned in Hong Kong for later in the year.
