Back-to-Back Food Expo at the WTC

The Asia Food Expo (AFEX) marked another sign of its commitment to enhance the standards of the food and beverage industry in the country. This year, AFEX 2009 was launched simultaneously with Food Serve Asia 2009 at the World Trade Center, last September 23 to September 26, 2009. 

Senator Francis Pangilinan officially opened the back-to-back expos which cater exhibits of technologies and business solutions that uplift the level of Filipino F&B entrepreneurs and food service professionals in the country.

Elmer C. Hernandez, Department of Trade and Industry Undersecretary, noted that Asia Food Expo has remained an undisputed venue to showcase the Philippine competitiveness in the food sector as well as bring into the country the latest innovations and developments in the food packaging and processing sectors.

AFEX 2009 is the best source of new technology in food processing, packaging and handling machinery and other equipment, as showcased by superior exhibitors. The expo also features strong foreign participation from the US Department of Agriculture, Le Club French Chamber of Commerce, Taiwan Pavilion, Indonesian Embassy, and Austrian Embassy—representing a number of company suppliers from their respective countries.

FoodServe Asia 2009, on the other hand, is the international exposition for the food service industry. Visitors from the catering and food service industry who are looking to improve and upgrade their businesses can benefit from the wide range of new solutions and equipment launched in this event. Seminars and demonstrations are also held during the expo to further increase the food service knowledge of participants.
