MARKET INFORMATION

South Korea is often overlooked when companies are looking for new markets in Asia. Thanks to years of rapid economic development, South Korea is now the 12th largest economy in the world and the 4th largest in Asia, with a population above 50 million people and 50 per cent living in the Seoul Capital Area.

The South Korean market is characterized by rapid urbanization and a young population with sophisticated taste. The South Koreans demand innovative and high-quality F&B products as well as unique dining experiences. This creates a solid demand for Nordic products that are associated with high quality and high food safety. South Korea has almost no land available for commercial farming and relies on imports to fulfil the demands for F&B products.

BACKGROUND

THE NORDIC FOOD & BEVERAGE DAYS IN KOREA has helped to introduce many Nordic brands and products to the South Korean market. Due to increased interest from Danish food and beverage companies, the Confederation of Danish Industry and the Embassy of Denmark in Seoul together with Food Nation as branding partner will again offer this strong export platform with a focused B2B programme. In 2019, 8 Danish companies participated together with 17 other Nordic companies.
