The announcement was made by Canadian Ambassador to Viet Nam David Devine in Ha Noi on December 16.
The annually held event will feature premium products, including Canadian beef as well as a wide range of Canadian seafood including lobster, oysters, snow crab, black cod, Atlantic salmon, and mussels. Canadian wines and spirits, maple syrup, Ambrosia apples and dried fruits will also be featured.
The launch of the Canadian Food Festival will be held at the Hemisphere Steak & Seafood Grill restaurant at the Sheraton Hanoi Hotel on December 16.
A number of restaurants, hotels and shops in Ha Noi will also join the event. They will offer a special discount on Canadian menu items during the month-long festival.
“We hope that events such as the Canadian Food Festival will help Vietnamese consumers understand the extremely high quality of our food ingredients and that as a result they will include our products in Viet Nam’s fine dining culture and extraordinary culinary tradition,” said Ambassador Devine.
