FABREO Expo (Food & Beverage Retention & Expansion Opportunities) - Columbia Basin Bites & Bevs
June 14 & 15

Discover Bolder, Brighter, Fresher!

The Columbia Basin is famous for growing world-class grapes, chickpeas, apples, pears, potatoes, sweet cherries, fresh peas, sweet corn, asparagus, carrots, mint and more, much more, all nurtured by abundant sun, rich soil and the nurturing Columbia, Snake and Yakima Rivers. The Columbia Basin is not only growing amazing crops, but is also growing some of the most amazing, might I say bolder, brighter and fresher, food and beverage processing companies on the planet.

Those companies, with their visionary, entrepreneurial owners will be showing off at the second annual FABREO Expo, Wednesday, June 15, 2016 and Thursday, June 16, 2016 at the TRAC Center, Pasco, WA.

“China presents one of the greatest business opportunities in American agricultural history!”
— Gary A. White, Producer, FABREO Expo

Agriculture is one of the few areas where the United States has a trade surplus with China, accounting for over 24% of the value of China’s agricultural imports in 2012 – 13, a larger share than any other country and reaching nearly $26 billion in annual sales. Hong Kong is the logical Gateway to China.

The FABREO Expo is honored to feature representatives from the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). They will be available to meet one-on-one to discuss how Hong Kong can facilitate your business with Mainland China.
