THAILAND FOOD & BEVERAGE TRADE MISSION


The Kitchen of the World

Hosted by FIAL, the Thailand Food and Beverage Trade Mission gives Australian companies the opportunity to meet the right distribution partner to export their products into the Indochina region. Thailand's aim to present itself as the ‘Kitchen of the World’ has bolstered their food and beverage sector. This provides Australian companies with an excellent opportunity to explore business partnerships and to supply quality food products to the market.


Why Thailand?

The continuing Thai economic growth, urbanisation and rise of the middle class has contributed to an increased demand for higher-value products. Food quality and health considerations, rather than price, are becoming key purchasing factors. Consumers are paying more attention to a healthy diet and view Australia as a reliable, reputable supplier of clean, healthy and high quality products.

Ingredient suppliers can also benefit from this programme: the Thai food and beverage manufacturing industry uses Australian ingredients, including dairy products, food additives, flavourings and cereals in their home products.

Thailand’s tourism and hospitality industry source considerable volumes of imported foods for both retail and foodservice channels. Though Bangkok’s metropolitan area remains Thailand’s largest consumer market, higher disposable incomes and increased tourism in regional Thailand is also fuelling new demand for quality imported food and beverage.
