About the Event

Food & Hotel China 2019 in Shanghai!

Food & Hotel China (FHC) is the largest specialist trade show for imported foods in China.
When: Tuesday 12 - Thursday 14 November 2019
Where: Shanghai, China
Registrations close: Sunday 22nd September 2019

Food & Hotel China 2019 (FHC) is your opportunity to capitalise on China’s growing food service industry that attracts local and international buyers from resorts & hotels and chefs!

FIAL’s Taste of Australia stand will be at Food & Hotel China 2019, building on the success of last year FIAL will again provide Australian food & beverage suppliers the opportunity to present their products to international buyers.

Why should you attend FHC 2019 with FIAL?

FIAL has been successfully showcasing Australian food & beverage suppliers at international trade shows for the past five years. In doing so, we provide companies with a low-cost pathway to enter new export markets and make meaningful connections with buyers. As a direct result of participating with FIAL's Taste of Australia stand, many Australian companies have successfully negotiated and secured their first orders into China.

2019 marks the fifth year of the Australia-China Free Trade Agreement (ChFTA). With tariffs between the two countries being reduced to ZERO, it is a fantastic opportunity for the food and beverage industry. There is an increasing demand for health and premium foods that provide potential opportunities for promising Australian exporters.

You can either display your product with us or have a sampling stand under the Taste Australia banner. All companies that attend with FIAL will be included in our Australian Food Catalogue, a buyer-focused, supplier-sourcing tool which can open up further opportunities to attract buyers.

About Food Hotel China

This show is dedicated to imports, attracting a high-calibre of buyers who seek quality international food products. Australian suppliers can take advantage of Australia's global reputation for green, clean, high-quality food products, which are of high demand in China.

Last year, the trade show comprised of 120,000 sqm of event space with 3,000 companies from 69 countries. The show attracted 118,274 trade buyers which were made up of 80+ relevant retailers, importers, distributors and eCommerce platforms. For more information, please visit:Food Hotel China 2019
