Welsh butcher on trade visit to the Far East
Butcher and manufacturer, Edwards of Conwy is one of several Welsh food and drink producers aiming to strengthen and build ties with prospective partners and investors as they visit South Korea this week.
Jeremy Stoker, UK and International Sales Development Manager at Edwards said: “Our objective by attending the Trade Development Visit is to build on the ITD desk research funded by the Welsh Government to assess the opportunity for our pork products in South Korea and meet potential customers.”
As part of the Welsh Government’s Food and Drink Wales Trade Development Visit to the region, five food and drink companies from Wales, including Edwards, will be given the opportunity to showcase their products to a host of distributors and retail buyers, all looking to secure new business.
The aim of the visit is to leverage networking and collaboration opportunities between the producers, Welsh Government and South Korea as well as strengthening business, trade and tourism relationships.
Commenting ahead of the visit, Minister for Rural Affairs, North Wales and Trefnydd, Lesley Griffiths, said: “This trade visit to South Korea provides an opportunity for Welsh food and drink producers to showcase their fantastic products and build new working relationships.
“Exports for the sector have grown in the past decade and the Welsh Government is supporting companies in Wales to see it continue.
“Our export support programme is available to all food and drink businesses and helps aspiring, new and established exporters. I am pleased we are supporting this group of producers to explore the South Korean market first hand and develop further connections.”
