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.
