Hoang Thi Quynh Tram, a representative of TS Food Company, revealed that the company has been exporting their products to the RoK for six years, adding that the company strongly desires to seek new customers who are interested in Vietnamese fruit and vegetables in the post-COVID-19 pandemic.

Tran Thi Kim Giang, a representative of Bao Hung International Joint Stock Company, said the company's key products are confectionery, cookies, chocolate-covered soft cakes, chocolate candies, and Omeli-branded jellies, adding that the RoK remains one of the firm's major markets moving forward.

Within the framework of Seoul Food 2022, the ASEAN - Korea Center has co-ordinated efforts with relevant agencies to organise the ASEAN Trade Show 2022 in support of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to gain entry into markets and improve their overall competitiveness.

The ASEAN Trade Show 2022 will also focus on promoting the food service industry, which has been hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting the growth of SMEs in ASEAN, whilst simultaneously promoting economic co-operation between the bloc and the RoK.
