Taste of Australia kicks off in HCM City


Taste of Australia kicks off in HCM City

HCM CITY — Taste of Australia, the annual celebration of Australia’s food and beverages in Viet Nam, began on Wednesday (April 20) in HCM City.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is held for the first time in Viet Nam since 2019.

The programme hopes to spread the word about Australian produce and products available in Viet Nam, starting with a video series on a Melbourne-based Australian-Vietnamese chef Frank Pham that will feature premium Australian produce like beef, lamb, abalone, and rock lobster.

The programme will also present a web series to highlight Australian wine varieties and their pairing with Vietnamese foods.

It is partnering with nearly 40 restaurants in Ha Noi and HCM City to highlight the versatility and quality of Australian produce, fresh fruits and products.

There will be an extensive nation-wide promotional campaign to bolster the image of Australian products sold at major retail stores such as MegaMart, WinMart, BRG, Kingfood, and Annam Gourmet Market.

Speaking at the launch on Wednesday, Australian consul-general in HCM City, Sarah Hooper, said: “This year’s Taste of Australia programme will again showcase the best of Australian food. It will build on Australia’s international reputation as a supplier of food and beverages that are high quality, safe and sustainable.”

The event will run until May. — VNS
