Tilleke & Gibbins


The countries of Southeast Asia, including Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar, have seen an increase in demand for imported food in recent years, driven by changing consumer preferences and the interconnectivity of global markets. While this has created new opportunities for international food and beverage manufacturers, the importation of food products into these countries requires compliance with detailed local regulations.

In this webinar, Tilleke & Gibbins experts from each of these countries will discuss an overview of the regulatory landscape and requirements for importing and distributing food products, as well as obtaining marketing and advertising clearance.
