digital event


It’s the most exciting time in the
history of food


New technologies are transforming food production and sustainability, at the same time as demand for plant-based foods and ingredients are growing exponentially in markets around the world. 

As a global food superpower with a rapidly growing plant-based food and ingredient sector, Canada has the opportunity to seize huge new markets around the world and build partnerships with other countries.

South Korea, with its close ties to Canada, is one of the global leaders Canada can and should partner with as potential investor, venture capital, joint ventures, partnerships and strategic alliances.

South Korea ranks among the top potential markets for Canadian companies thanks to the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement, and Korea’s position as one of the largest food & beverage markets in Asia including plant based food and beverage manufacturing.

CityAge and the Canada Korea Business Association invite you to a digital event focused on how Canada can seize commercial opportunities in the Korean plant-based food and ingredient product sectors to create opportunities for trade, joint ventures, research and development, partnership and investments for Canadian and
Korean businesses.
