Sweden will invest 48 million Swedish kronas ($5.5 million) into its food and beverage export sector this year to meet increasing international demand, said Swedish authorities at the opening ceremony of the TrySwedish Pavilion at the SIAL exhibition in Shanghai on May 16.

David Hallgren, trade commissioner of Business Sweden, said the exhibition is an invitation for Chinese to enjoy the quality of Swedish food.

"People's demand for food quality is getting higher and Swedish products can meet this," said Hallgren.
