The Ukrainian Food Expo
It’s been challenging and fascinating to participate in this on-line trade fair. The event was created for leading Ukrainian and foreign manufacturers of grocery products, as well as for beginners, and suppliers of technologies, equipment and services for production.
During the Expo we had a possibility to listen to some leading speakers from grocery business, successful exporters and foreign specialists who shared valuable information, export developing practical cases and expert advice on the development of the grocery business.
The event provided exclusive effective tools for business networking between exhibitors and business visitors. Whereas form the other side it was a little bit awkward to cope with the internet connection, lack of time and strictly fixed schedule of online meetings.
We had some really unique experience to demonstrate our products via the web-camera to representatives of the food industry from different countries like Moldova, Poland, Great Britain, Chile, Qatar and Canada which were mostly interested in buying white and black beans, chickpeas, lentils and fava beans.
It’s still too early to talk about the outcome of the Expo however we are looking forward to getting as much benefits as possible and hope for a quick start and long-term cooperation with our new leads.
The Ukrainian Food Expo as on-line platform for gaining new business contacts and direct negotiations has shown that there are no limits for business and international trade during the time when many trade fairs have been cancelled or postponed due to the outbreak of Covid-19.
