Organic Food & Beverage Business Mission to Singapore and Vietnam

Organic Food & Beverage is a growing sector driven by increased awareness of the health benefits of organic products, as well as increase in disposable income.

In Singapore, the total organic food retail sales comprised 10% – 15% of total retail sales or an estimated value of between US$ 10 – 15 million. Singapore imports 90% of its food requirements.

Similarly in Vietnam, demand for organic products has grown significantly. Area for organic farming has increased by 3.6-fold since 2010 to more than 76,000ha in 2017. However, Vietnam still lacks national standards and a comprehensive legal framework for production, certification and quality control of organic agriculture products.

The 7th business mission under the EU Business Avenues in South East Asia programme, Organic Food & Beverage, will take selected European companies to Singapore and Vietnam from 15 – 20 May 2018.

The first part of the business mission week will see the European companies travelling to Singapore for a day of exhibition and business meetings. The companies will then travel to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to participate in EuroSphere 2018.
