The K Group has signed an agreement with Donggao Group to exclusively supply Korean food and beverages.
Officials from The K Group say that the power of Donggao Group will boost their dominance in the Chinese market. “The annual expenditures by Donggao Group to purchase our products will reach six trillion won. By using their railway system, we have the opportunity to distribute Korean food and beverages all over China.”
