HA NOI (VNS) — Food Ingredients Asia (FI Asia), Asia's biggest trade show and meeting of firms manufacturing food ingredients, will be held at Jakarta International Expo Kemayoran, Indonesia, from October 15 to 17.

This would be the third food ingredient trade show of leading companies, offering opportunities to expand markets to business players in the food industry around the world.

The event will introduce food groups to the world's biggest and developed markets and allow discovery of resources and services as well as new suppliers. It would also provide a window to trends and developments in the food industry in the ASEAN community.

Two Vietnamese firms, namely the Ba Dinh Foodstuff Technology Company and the Asia Sai Gon Food Ingredient Company, are attending the event. The enterprises would showcase food ingredients for the food and beverage sector. Viet Nam is participating in the exhibition for the third time.

"The exhibition would provide opportunities to companies searching for partners and markets as well as to diversify their food ingredients and beverages," said Ta Quang Ha, director of Ba Dinh Foodstuff Technology Company, at the conference held in Ha Noi yesterday.

Rungphech Rose Chitanuwat, Business Development Director of UBM Asia and Food Ingredients Asia organiser, said the exhibition has been an effective bridge for businesses to advertise their brands and expand their market.

The exhibition aims to bring in 450 participants and 13,000 visitors from 56 countries.

FI Asia 2015 is scheduled to take place at the Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre in HCM City in May 2015.
