KUCHING: Sarawak banana chips received overwhelming response at the Salon International de I’Agroalimentaire (SIAL) Paris, held at Parc des Expositions de Paris-Nord Villepinte, in France recently.
SIAL – also known as the ‘Global Food Marketplace’ – is the world’s leading food fair.
Minister of International Trade and E-Commerce Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh led a delegation that also included Assistant Minister of E-Commerce Datuk Mohd Naroden Majais, to visit the fair.
Wong, who is also the Second Finance Minister, commended the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from Sarawak for promoting local products at an international food fair.
He expressed others would emulate the spirit of these Sarawak SMEs in featuring Sarawak products in the global arena.
According to Wong, a lot of global trade fairs are taking place and offering platforms for industry players to exchange information and learn from one another.
He said given the level of technology these days, SMEs and other businesses could easily acquire information about and join these international events.
Over 7,000 corporations from 109 countries took part in this year’s SIAL Paris. Of the number, about 40 were from Malaysia.
At SIAL Paris, visitors had access to a comprehensive array of worldwide food offerings that included beverages, equipment and services, canned and preserved food, gourmet food, savoury grocery products, fruit and vegetables, frozen products, semi-processed food products, ingredients and outsourcing solutions, health products and food supplements, dairy products, poultry as well as wine and spirits.
Wong said apart from SIAL Paris, he also led the delegation to have a dialogue with London-based trade commissioner of the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) Megat Iskandar Ahmad Dassilah.
Wong was informed that at least three million Muslims are presently residing in the UK, where halal food has a great potential to be marketed.
Megat Iskandar also enlightened Wong and the delegates on the standard of procedure (SOP) for export of products during the session.
