The NSW Government is helping some of the State's most entrepreneurial food manufacturers promote their produce on an international stage during a Trade Mission to South East Asia next week.

Eight NSW companies are participating in the Trade Mission to Malaysia and Singapore from August 25-30.

Singapore and Malaysia in particular offer significant potential for NSW food exporters. Both markets are net importers of food with Singapore reliant on food imports for 90 per cent of its needs and Malaysia importing about 80 per cent of its beef requirements and most of its dairy goods.

Companies participating in the Trade Mission will have the chance to make new contacts and promote their businesses and products.

NSW has an international reputation for producing fresh food manufactured using safe and trusted agricultural methods, and the Trade Mission has the potential to engage more overseas buyers in what NSW has to offer.

Companies participating in the Trade Mission produce a wide variety of foods ranging from organic snacks and freeze dried fruits to fresh juice, fruit and vegetables, natural honeycomb, macadamia nuts and oils, native herbs and spices, and wines.

Confirmed companies joining the trade mission are: Sero Australia, Grove Juice, Viva Jordan Australia, Brookfarm, Super Seasons, Global Fresh Marketing, Lillypilly Wines and Printhie Wines.

The companies will have opportunities to attend presentations, tour supermarkets in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, network and have discussions with appropriate business identities.
