This year, the products are displayed by two Russian importers since no Vietnamese firms are able to attend the event due to travel restrictions triggered by COVID-19.

Among the Russian exhibitors is Vietcoco Co., Ltd. based in Krasnoyarsk city, eastern Siberia. The company imports organic coconut products from Vietnam to distribute to local retailers, Director-General Anton Kudryatsev told a Vietnam News Agency correspondent in Russia.

The WorldFood Moscow 2020 is expected to provide an opportunity for the firm to seek partners in the retailing sector in Moscow, he said, adding that Vietnam is one of the world’s leading exporters of coconut and the product’s presence in Russia not only helps raise bilateral trade between the two countries but also boost its exports to the Commonwealth of Independent States (SNG) market.

The other is Sense Asia which sells tea and coffee grown in Vietnam under the brand of “Teapins” and “Mr.Viet,” respectively. The products are now available across Russia.

This year’s fair is attended by only ten countries due to the novel coronavirus./.
