It might be worth your while to gain access to Chinese market. I am currently trying to make contacts with the community of English expatriates abroad. We have the same objective. I have some agents in China to give me assistance.

Hi Jeremy,

Inwards payments to UK accounts are subject to a fee and currency conversion rate from your bank which will add on to your financial costs.

One popular method to minimize these costs is to obtain the service of an FSA authorized foreign exchange dealer where the fees are very low compared to the banks and the exchange rate very much in your favor.

As we are one of the specialists in this field if you wish to proceed or need further clarifications, please contact us on 020 7240 1214 or rasika@tegforex.co.uk

Good luck with your new venture.

Before you waste all your money, ask yourself:
1/ You say it's easy, so why are the pubs and bars so full every Friday night? Probably because it's about something else than the beer
2/ To make it pay, you will need a big distribution network, a marketing campaign, etc.
3/ Most bitter drinkers are picky about what they drink and beer -in-a-bag doesn't sound very exciting. You will have to overcome this problem.

On the upside, the expat market is relatively easy to reach:
1/ They usually have clubs in major cities, complete with a website and mailing list
2/ Offer the club's leader sample packs and background information, so they can turn this into one of their regular event. They will be pleased to get a ready-made evening programme
3/ You may even find your distributor in the same group, solving a lot of the logistic problems.

Does the brand already exist in the UK?

If you're targeting ex-pat customers around the world, you might want to think about internationalising your website. UKTI have a subsidised service called the Export Communications Review which can give you a tailored action plan on how to get your website visible in international search engines e.g. www.google.com.au, www.google.co.nz (change the country to see if you are visible!).

Good luck with exporting your beer in a bag!
