 Alberta companies are invited to participate in a health ingredients mission to South Korea and Japan from September 27-October 7, 2017, targeting the functional ingredients, natural food ingredients, food additives, cosmeceutical and related services sectors. The mission is anchored around the Health Ingredients (HI) Japan tradeshow.

“Participating companies will have the opportunity to showcase their products and engage with buyers through a Canadian superfood seminar and business-to-business (B2B) matchmaking program at the Embassy of Canada,” says Katie Meredith, trade and relations officer, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. “Companies will also have the opportunity to conduct Korea-based site visits to deepen their understanding of Korea’s health ingredients market.”

Following the completion of the Korea program, participants will travel to Fukuoka, a city in Japan’s Kyushu region. “Companies will have the opportunity to engage in a B2B matchmaking and seminar program and to conduct outreach visits in the region,” says Meredith. “Participants will then travel to Tokyo, to exhibit in shared Alberta booth space at the HI Japan tradeshow, providing an opportunity to engage directly with key buyers in this sector.”

To be eligible to participate in this mission, participating companies should be export-ready Alberta suppliers of healthy/natural ingredients, functional foods, food additives, cosmeceutical ingredients or related products and services interested in the South Korean and Japan markets.

There is no fee to participate in the program; however, companies are responsible for payment of all their own travel expenses and product shipping costs.

The application deadline is July 21, 2017. For more information, contact Katie Meredith at 780-427-6057.
