MQ Business Migrants Attend 'Taste of Queensland' 2022
MQ's migrants had the opportunity to see and sample a diverse range of Queensland food and beverage products. The event helped them establish contacts with Queensland manufacturers and source the right products for their export trading businesses in Queensland. Buiness migrants were especially interested in Queensland alcoholic beverages, nuts, edible oil, candy, honey and mineral water. One buyer from China has already placed an order of frozen beef valued at approximately A$100,000.
MQ migrants from China, Mr and Mrs Zhang, with their company 'Crest Chocolates', were exhibitors at the Brisbane session to showcase a variety of their products.
The couple purchased the Crest Chocolate factory in Brisbane three years ago and have transformed the business into an export-oriented confectionery manufacturer. Pictured below: Mr and Mrs Zhang presenting their beautifully designed and packaged chocolate to Hon Cameron Dick, the Treasurer and Minister for Trade and Investment.
In the evening of 2 November 2022, MQ business migrants were also invited to attend the Australia China Business Council (ACBC) – Queensland cocktail networking event at KPMG headquarters in Brisbane. They were warmly welcomed by MQ Manager, Greg McKean and ACBC Executive Member and KPMG Director, Bert Wu.
The Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ) Commissioner for China and TIQ staff from Shanghai, Chengdu, and Hong Kong also attended the event.
