Hanoi — "The Embassy is delighted to partner with Fivimart in offering Hanoians an opportunity to experience some of our finest produce," said Ms. Deborah Chatsis, Canadian Ambassador to Viet Nam.
Discounted products such as dessert cakes and Ambrosia apples will be on sale at Fivimart supermarkets from February 28 to March 11, 2012.
Ambrosia apples, first discovered in British Columbia, are well known around the world for their sweet and juicy flavour, fine crisp texture and pleasant aroma.
"We want our delicious, safe and healthy Canadian foodstuffs to become part of the modern Vietnamese fine dining culture and lifestyle," Chatsis explained.
This is the second launch of Canadian products at Fivimart. These promotions have helped familiarise Vietnamese buyers with the high quality of Canadian food. Vietnam has become a truly viable market for Canada, with $126 million in agricultural goods sales in 2011. -- VNS
