HCM CITY — Russian Export Centre and E&N Group on Thursday opened Russian Gastro House in HCM City’s District 1 to help Russian companies introduce their products directly to Vietnamese customers.
Evgeny Volosov of E&N Group said: “Demand for Russian products has increased in Việt Nam. Therefore, we established Russian Gastro House to present Russian products to the market.”
The products on display include children’s food, chocolate, bread, meat, fish and meat/fish-based products, sunflower seeds, ice cream made from fresh milk, dairy products, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, with their quality meeting Russian food safety standards.
Some 100 Russian companies are displaying their products at Russian Gastro House, which is at 86-88 Hàm Nghi Street, Volosov said.
Another 200 would come soon, he said.
Talking about the prices, he said the prices of Russian products are more competitive than those of the US and EU and even Thailand and China.
Russian Gastro House is also willing to help Vietnamese export their products to Russia, he added.
Trade between Russia and Việt Nam topped US$3.2 billion in the first 11 months of this year, up 26.7 per cent year-on-year. The two countries have set a target of $10 billion by 2020. — VNS
