Welsh Food & Drink in Tokyo
South Caernarfon Creameries recently supported a Welsh Food &
Drink business reception hosted by the First Minister, Carwyn Jones at
the British Ambassador’s Residence in Tokyo. We shipped a range of
Dragon products and promotional leaflets to Tiger Nakajima, the Chief
Representative of Japan for the event held in September. Over 140
influential guests were in attendance from various sectors: FDI, Trade,
Tourism, Press/Media. The First Minister relayed a strong message to
promote Welsh food products and its exceptional quality to markets in
Japan and the wider Asian market.
Following the event Yoko Kobori, Senior Wales Affairs Officer
reported that the British Embassy in Tokyo would continue to promote
Dragon products to potential Japanese importers and distributors. They
were “especially keen to promote Welsh Cheese and Beer in 2016”.
This is a fantastic opportunity to develop the brand internationally
and promote Dragon Welsh Cheese to export buyers. We have a strong story
to share with cheese buyers and importers looking for Welsh Cheese due
to the provenance and heritage of our range.
