Two wine buyer delegations will visit Lodi in June to meet with local wineries interested in exporting to China.

Nine representatives from various direct wine importing companies from Shenyang will be the first group to meet with wineries on June 8. Shenyang is the largest city in the Liaoning Province in northeast China.

On June 12, another buyers delegation from Shanghai will have lunch with local business owners to discuss possibly exporting foods including nuts, dried fruits, vegetables, baking ingredients, milk, snacks and cereal.

The Lodi Chamber of Commerce is looking for wineries and food companies who make such products to meet with the two separate delegations. There is no charge for Lodi Chamber members, and a fee of $150 for non-chamber members.

Interested businesses should contact the Lodi Chamber of Commerce at 209-367-7840 ext. 100 or email frontdesk@lodichamber.com.

For more information, please contact Chamber CEO and president Pat Patrick at 209-367-7840 ext. 104 or email him at ppatrick@lodichamber.com.

Interested parties can also contact Chamber Director of International Business Development Frank Gayaldo at 209-327-0759 or email him at fgayaldo@lodichamber.com.
