Singapore believes there is no better place to promote food than itself. At Asia’s premier trade event for food and hospitality industry, Food and Hotel Asia, more than 3,100 exhibitors from across the globe showcase a huge selection of food products, services and technologies to Asian buyers.

As China’s middle class expands, so does their growing appetite for imported food.

China’s Yonghui Superstores has signed an agreement with Singapore Manufacturing Federation to bring some iconic Singapore flavors to its 400 outlets in China.

“Compared with local products, people think imported food items are safer and healthier. On top of that, there’s demand for new things among young people,” Guo Rongzong, general manager of the Food & Supplies Division at Yonghui Superstores said.
