Irish food makes inroads in China
AN Irish food showroom is expected to open in China giving Irish suppliers a direct route to the Chinese market.
The venture promises to give clients an all-year round opportunity to display their produce to Chinese distributors, wholesalers and retailers.
The venture's Chinese backers are expected to meet Bord Bia soon. The project is part of a Shanghai government initiative to facilitate easier movement of imported goods.
The showroom will be located in the Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone in Shanghai.
