We were ready to make a step up to a larger, more international customer-base,” said sales representative from NONG SHIM Co., Ltd.
“This was the 3rd time we exhibited at IFE and the experience was worthwhile. The days were extremely advantageous to us as a company and gave us a beneficial platform for exhibiting, especially since a new Ethnic & Cultural Section was created for the show, generating targeted interest. I am really pleased with the launch platform that IFE09 provided for our product range (NONG SHIM, a world class food and lifestyle services creating company; Jinro, the world's leading producer of Soju; OKF Corp, an all-natural drink producer and Korea Foods, the biggest Korean food UK wholesaler) and the subsequent amount of interest that we received. We met a diverse range of interested visitors from the retail, foodservice and manufacturing sectors and are busy converting leads from the event into orders. We were very pleased by the range of visitors, from small independents, the multiples and food service,” said Ms Heewon Jun, Marketing & PR Executive of Korea foods Ltd.
