Pictures: Carmel ZacconeLOCAL dried fruit grower and producer Murray River Organics will be taking part in Asia’s largest food and beverage show next week.
Two representatives of the company will attend SIAL China, which attracts 55,000 visitors each year with more than 2000 exhibitors.
The company, which has a processing plant at Mourquong and grows produce on surrounding blocks, will be one of nine promoting their business at the Australian Organic stand.
Murray River Organics director Erling Sorensen said the Shanghai event would draw a large crowd and looked forward to being more involved in China.
“It’s significant in that it’s the largest trade show for food producers and obviously the free trade agreement with China will have an impact on what we do,” Mr Sorensen said.
“Currently, there is a 10 per cent tariff on organic dried fruit, which is what we do and that will come down to zero.”
He said the company planned to meet with existing customers as well as look to build their customer base further.
“We’ve got a number of customers up there who we will be meeting with and of course we are looking to expand our market,” he said.
