Food from Finland welcomes Finnish Food and Beverage companies to join China-Virtual Buyers’ Meeting from 19 April to 30 April. Virtual Buyers’ Meetings will utilize Chinese communication tool Wechat to organize one-to-one meetings with Chinese buyers.

Event objectives

Due to COVID-19, travel restrictions to China might continue during early 2021. However, imported food and beverage market in China has continuous growth and Chinese buyers are actively looking for new brands to bring to China. To capture the opportunity together with Finnish companies, being able to meet relevant and good quality buyers, who are truly interest in Finnish products, is very important.

Buyers are tailor-selected based on categories from participating Finnish companies’ wishes. Each participating company will meet ten potential buyers from different cities in China.

Food from Finland virtual buyers meeting is a place to meet well-selected Chinese importers and buyers, including retailers, e-commerce players.

Preliminary schedule:

19.-30.4.2021
One-on-one meetings will be scheduled according to agreed time between Finnish companies and potential buyers.

Who can participate in this event?

  • Producers of Finnish food and beverage products and have done basic China market research related to your products.
  • Representatives or Distributors of Finnish brands in China.

We recommend you to be familiar of basic knowledge of Chinese business culture before the meeting.

In addition, to get the best out of the buyers meeting, we highly recommend participants to conduct an initial product compliance check for traditional and cross-border e-commerce export to China.

Due to complex custom clearance requirement on imported food and beverage in China, this step is crucial for exporters to understand the possibility for your products export to China and have an estimation of readiness for export to China. It is also recommended to consider registering your trademark to protect brand since China only acknowledges trademarks registered within its own jurisdiction and follows the first-to-file system.
