New Zealand Food Connection Malaysia 2016 @ Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur

Missed last year's event, but there I was to this year's New Zealand Food Connection Malaysia 2016 @ Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur. Food Connection is a B2B trade show series, running across Asia by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE). Held at Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur last week or so, it was an eye opening experience, seeing, and trying out these products from New Zealand.

The trade show will give Malaysia’s top food and beverage professionals an opportunity to taste some of New Zealand’s finest food and wines, and meet many of the country’s key producers. New Zealand is a trusted supplier of high quality and safe food to consumers in more than 100 countries.

“Every day, our more than 2,600 food producers create mouthwatering and nutritious foods to suit every palate in Asia, all in safe, sustainable and pristine conditions,” says Matt Ritchie, New Zealand Trade Commissioner to Malaysia. 

New Zealand is one of only two countries to export more than half its total food production and Malaysia is its 9th largest export market, with trade volumes growing at pace year-on-year. The showcase at Food Connection Malaysia is a demonstration of New Zealand’s understanding of the complex international food market and the rapidly growing need to produce safe and quality food in a sustainable and innovative manner.
