Vietnam Foodexpo is an important international trade promotion event with the largest scale in the food industry in Vietnam.

The expo featured approximately 500 booths, introducing a wide range of agricultural products such as raw and processed aquatic products, processed food, food processing technology, food preservation and packaging technology, as well as food safety and hygiene technology.

In his opening address, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai noted the event provides an ideal opportunity for exhibitors to follow up on current local food trends and relevant Government policies.

Apart from major exhibitors from Argentina, Russia and Poland, the organizers have put on a special area for visitors to allow them to explore food from the Republic of Korea, with plenty of Korean foods being introduced in Vietnam for the first time.

Within the framework of the exhibition, there are activities to organize domestic and international purchasing delegations to trade directly at the exhibition. In addition, the organizers also conduct a series of activities to maximize the efficiency of enterprises’ attendance.

The expo will run until November 19. It is expected to attract about 20,000 visitors./.
