Under the memorandum of understanding, the two sides will set up a joint venture named Greg Norman NutiFood based in New York.

This joint venture will also open Greg Norman NutiCafé coffee chains in Vietnam and other Asian countries first before expanding to the US.

It aims to make use of NutiFood’s research and production strengths along with Norman’s international prestige to help Vietnamese coffee, especially iced milk coffee, stretch its reach to the world.
