 The Alberta Korea Office will be representing Alberta’s agriculture and agri-food sector at Korea’s Imported Goods Fair from June 22-24, 2017, in Seoul, South Korea. Alberta companies can send samples and/or product brochures to be profiled in the Alberta booth at the show. “This is a cost-effective way to obtain feedback and potential leads for your product in Korea without requiring travel to the market,” says Katie Meredith, trade and relations officer, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.

South Korea is heavily reliant on imports to meet consumption demands and is an important and attractive market for Alberta’s agri-food sector.

The Canada-South Korea Free Trade Agreement came into effect on January 1, 2015, providing significantly improved market opportunities and competitiveness for many Canadian agriculture and food products. With the agreement in force and new tariff reductions each year, now is the time for Alberta companies to expand their efforts and presence in South Korea to take advantage of the growing market opportunities for their agri-food products.

The Imported Goods Fair is a multi-sectoral show organized by the Korean Importers Association. In 2016, 234 companies from 46 countries participated in the exhibition, attracting 20,018 visitors to the show.

For more information or to participate in this showcase, contact Katie Meredith at 780-427-6057 as soon as possible to ensure sufficient time to ship materials to Korea.
