Fukuoka-based Pietro announced it will begin the full-scale export of its salad dressings to Hong Kong before year’s end. As the demand the in Asia for safe, healthy Japanese food products increases, Pietro hopes to create a foothold in Hong Kong before expanding into China and Southeast Asian markets. To date, the company has primarily exported products to North America, where its dressings are contract manufactured in San Francisco, and Europe. This year, Pietro plans to invest ¥1.2 billion into new dressing and frozen food production lines, part of which will manufacture products for the export market. Source: Nishinippon Shimbun 5/15
