On the afternoon of November 15, Nafoods Group and more than ten businesses representing the two countries Vietnam and New Zealand participated in AgriConnectioNZ, themed Strategic Partnership in Agriculture.
The event is part of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s visit and working program in Vietnam. Also attending the event were the Vietnamese Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Le Minh Hoan and the New Zealand Minister of Trade and Export Growth, Minister of Agriculture, Damien O’Connor.
Nafoods Group is honored to be one of the few businesses selected to participate in this event. With more than 100 visits, Nafoods’ booth quickly attracted great attention and interest from delegates from both countries and received positive reviews from visitors after trying them out and experiencing them directly. There were the 3 core soft dried products of passion fruit, mango, and pineapple already available in the domestic market; 2 cashew products of tom yum and cheese flavor; 3 fresh fruit products from core passion fruit varieties which were researched by Nafoods and granted with exclusive protection including Dai Nong 1, Nafoods 1, and Que Phong 1. Especially dried passion fruit and tom yum cashew nut are the two products that impressed many.

Speaking at the event, Minister Le Minh Hoan believed that, through the important visit of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and a high-level delegation, representatives of the New Zealand business community and the agricultural sector, the businesses of the two countries continue to “share meaningful stories, understand each other better, and get closer”. With the message of “working together, creating growth” and “our potential – your opportunity”, Minister Le Minh Hoan affirmed: “Vietnam will create favorable conditions to boost cooperation with New Zealand” to invest and develop successfully, sustainably, and tightly knit for a long term.
Hopefully, appearing at this event will open up more opportunities for cooperation between Nafoods Group and New Zealand customers present at the event. We wish the Vietnam – New Zealand partnership to continue and flourish.
