Nordic Food Day, Swedish pavilion: Nopa, Hong Kong

At the 2018 edition of NOPA (Natural & Organic Product Asia) expo in Hong Kong two important food promotion events will take place: Nordic Food Day on August 28 and a Try Swedish Pavilion during 29 – 31 August.

The Asian edition of Nopa was launched in 2014 and now is the most established natural and organic products sourcing platform in Asia.

In cooperation with the Sweden and Finland Consulates and promotion agencies, this is the first time for Sweden and Finland to organize a joint-promotion activity – Nordic Food Day. At a Nordic Lunch cuisine from the Nordic countries will be served.

Sweden has the vision to become the New Culinary Nation. The combination of creative producers and chefs who use the countryside and produce to create innovative and forward-looking cuisine and exclusive culinary experiences is at the core of what Sweden as a culinary nation can offer. As proud ambassadors of the Swedish food culture, our common goal is to put Sweden on the global food map, states Business Sweden.

At Nopa Swedish ‘fika’ ((a very Swedish coffee break with Swedish canapés) will be served at the Try Swedish Pavilion, at 2 pm on 29 August.

Sweden will be at booth number H01, Hall 1DE, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Wanchai, Hong Kong (Harbour Road Entrance).

Since 2014 Nopa has been the leading trade platform for all things natural and organic. The 2017 show attracted over 250 exhibitors from more than 31 nations & regions, showcasing thousands of natural, certified, healthy, wholesome and organic products in Hong Kong.

Riding this success, Nopa 2018 is set to take a great leap forward. With more exhibitors and more space, the expo will have more room for visitors. 9,000 buyers are expected through its doors, reflecting the rising demand for natural and organic products in Asia.
