FHC – Market Entry Package for UK Food & Drink

Food and Hotel China Shanghai (FHC) is the leading tradeshow for international companies introducing their food and drink products to the China market.  

FHC 2021 will be the 25th edition of a show which attracted over 127,000 visitors to the last edition. The show is the forum to introduce brands to the Chinese trade.  Many UK companies have a track record over the years of using this platform to successfully enter and expand in China. 

The Food & Drink Exporters Association ( FDEA), PS8 and China Britain Business Council (CBBC), FDEA’s in market expert partner for China, have teamed up to offer a new market entry package or an individual stand option at FHC. 

UK Group Stand – FHC-Shanghai Participation Options: 

  1. Market Entry Package – With ongoing travel difficulties and restrictions on visitors entering China, this package aims to introduce new brands to the Chinese trade at FHC, with your interests represented by qualified local staff. This option includes a dedicated display for your products on UK group stand, with visitor enquiries managed by China Britain Business Council’s team based locally in Shanghai.
  2. Individual stand- 9sqm or larger
    Already in the market?  You can book your own stand to be manned by your China-based representative.

 China Food & Drink Forum- Monday 8 November.

All participants will benefit from a half-day roundtable session to gain the latest insider insights on China’s food and drink market today as well as some of the key sub-sector for British exporters. We aim to invite experienced importers to share insights on how they select brands and what they think will sell in China. A comprehensive wrap-up of the latest regulatory updates and policy outlook will help you prepare in advance for the year to come. The forum will end with a presentation on how to communicate with your target audience in China more effectively.
