Business Finland, in collaboration with Business Sweden and the Embassy of Denmark in Korea, is organizing the joint Nordic Food & Beverage Days trade mission to Seoul. This visit will include a B2B matchmaking session targeting Korean buyers, a comprehensive introduction to the Korean market, and study visits to retail stores categorized by product type.

Over the past eight years, the Food from Finland program has significantly boosted the global trade of the Finnish food industry. Although the program concluded successfully in 2023, the Nordic F&B Days aims to identify new potential buyers, maintain relationships with existing partners, and engage with major market players continuously.

Participants will also have the option to extend their stay and arrange separate meetings with Business Finland Korea to discuss future steps.

Target of the visit

  • Promote Finnish expertise, products, and innovative ingredients to a Korean B2B audience, including buyers and product/business developers.
  • Generate business contacts, gather valuable feedback, and create business opportunities for Finnish food producers in South Korea.
  • Provide Finnish participants with a comprehensive understanding of the South Korean food market.

All participants will have a one-on-one online meeting with Business Finland South Korea in the second week of August to discuss their target buyers, demands, and goals for this visit.

Who should attend

This visit is aimed at Finnish food manufacturers, specifically those involved in:

  • Consumer Goods: Preferred categories include drinks, children's products, snacks, and health functional foods.
  • Ingredients: Preferred categories include oats and health functional foods.
