On display at the Vietnamese booth were types of organic rice OrgaGro, cacao powder T-Bros, natural fibre bags, and work clothes made from coconut fibres.
The event, which took place on November 10 – 11, was an opportunity for Vietnamese producers to study the demand in this market as well as seek distributors for their products.
From early next year, seven organic types of OrgaGro rice will be sold in supermarkets of Foodstuffs - one of the two largest retail groups in New Zealand.
