More than 120 bioproducts in cosmetics, functional food, medical equipment and environment made in the Republic of Korea (RoK) are being introduced to Vietnamese consumers at an exhibition that opened in Ho Chi Minh City on September 13.
The event was co-organised by the Chuncheon Bioindustry Foundation (CBF) and Lien Hoa Group, a partner of the CBF in Vietnam.
CBF President Ju-Su Jeon said that the exhibits were produced with the RoK’s latest technology and based on research conducted by CBF experts. The products have been available in more than 100 countries worldwide so far and are trusted by consumers due to their quality, he said.
Meanwhile, Mayor of Chuncheon Choi Dong-yong stressed that the city is home to 60 bio-technology companies which have a wide range of functional food granted certificates from the Korea Food & Drug Administration (KFDA).
With a fast-growing economy along with a large population, Vietnam is a fertile land for Korean bioproducts in the next few years, he added.
Meanwhile, Truong Thi Nhi, General Director of the Lien Hoa Group, said that Korean bioproducts will allow domestic consumers to access quality and safe products.
The exhibition also creates a chance for Vietnamese and Korean businesses to seek partners to join supply-distribution chains while promoting cooperation and technology transfer between the two countries.
The exhibition will run until September 15.
