Sino Access provides a range of proven services to assist Australian food companies sell their produce in China.
The burgeoning urbanisation of China, increased wealth and the effectiveness of Australia’s Free Trade Agreement have combined to propel China to become Australia’s number one market over the past decade.
Food and Agribusiness Exports
Between 2009 and 2018, Sino Access was Consultant to the Victorian Government Department of Primary Industries and Department of Economic Development facilitating trade missions for Victorian growers and suppliers to meet with China buyers.
Through our Government and corporate work in China we have secured sales of fruit, dairy, meat and processed foods to importers, e-Commerce (including Cross Border), distributors and retailers.
Through 2020 and 2021 we are one of few consulting companies to continously have a presence in China during the Pandemic and to continue to support Australian food companies.
Our work includes:
Detailed Market Research
Export Market Development Plans
Business Matching and Negotiations
Branding and Marketing
Import, health and labelling regulations
As consultants, we will not take on products or projects which we believe do not have a market in China or we cannot achieve a successful outcome.
I wished to specifically have noted, the exemplary attention & professionalism that you displayed on the recent Trade Mission to China. The calibre of the importers which we were provided access to was exceptional and already we are conducting positive follow up dialogue with several of these companies.
