Many Thai products proved successful at Seoul Food 2021, which was hosted from July 27 to 30 in the South Korean capital. The trade show helped increase export opportunities for Thai food products to the Korean market, according to the DITP’s overseas office in Seoul.
Eleven Thai entrepreneurs joined the trade show in South Korea delivering samples to exhibit at the fair. More than 100 walk-in visitors and 30 Korean importers joined the event virtually, creating 53 successful business negotiations with Thai enterprises. It is expected that Seoul Food 2021 will generate future export orders.
