Korea Foodservice & Ingredient Inbound Trade Mission to ID & WA ~ June 25-28, 2019


This is an excellent opportunity to participate in the growing Korean market, which remains the 5th largest agricultural export market for the United States. In 2017, the U.S. exported over $7.9 billion in agricultural products to Korea, up from the previous year. Korea is a fast-paced market where new ideas and trends are eagerly tried and accepted, and the HRI foodservice industry continues to expand as consumers demand more diversified and sophisticated choices under increased income levels. Korea generates new opportunities for imported products that offer new tastes, healthy recipes, added-value, stable supply, consistent quality, and specifications catered to the industry. This activity is designed for Western U.S. companies interested in the rapidly-growing Korean market. Companies will meet for table-top and one-on-one visits with qualified ingredient and foodservice buyers, or have the option to host the delegation for a site-tour if the schedule allows.

Benefits of Participating:
  • Connect with pre-qualified ingredient and foodservice buyers representing South Korea that are hand-selected by WUSATA’s in-country contractor and are interested in finding suppliers.
  • Evaluate how your product fits in to the marketplace and assess the competitive landscape by personally engaging with various buyers, importers, and distributors.
  • Gather current market intelligence, consumer preference, and trend information directly from the source.
  • Identify new buyers for your product or re-connect with existing clients.
