WA producers secure aisle in Hong Kong supermarket
West Australian food producers are set to secure a dedicated aisle in a major Hong Kong supermarket following a ministerial trade visit. Minister for Agriculture and Food Ken Baston met with representatives from Hong Kong chain 759 Store about stocking produce from WA. Baston said the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) could act as a facilitator for private deals between producers and retailers. He said many Hong Kong stores were looking for fresh fruit and vegetable and meat, as well as packaged goods like cereal, honey and wine.
