Koreans curious about calamansi, malunggay
Calamansi, malunggay and other Filipino food products were a hit at the recent Seoul Food Expo 2016 at the Gyeonggi Province in South Korea.
The Philippine Information Agency, quoting Philippine ambassador to Korea Raul Hernandez, said the Philippines’ participation in the Korean food festival was a “welcome success,” with many products getting the interest of potential buyers.
The Philippine agricultural products showcased at the Philippine pavilion were banana chips, calamansi products (juice, concentrate and essential oil), moringa products (tea, snacks and noodles), coconut products (fresh coconut water, virgin coconut oil, body oil and body lotion), organic heirloom rice (from Mt. Province, Benguet and Ifugao), organic coffee from Cavite, yacon tea and syrup, and guyabano tea and juice.
The Philippine delegation was composed of agriculture officials and 16 food exporters.
