WIM Poster

With the rise of the globalization of food trade, the challenge of keeping up with the changes in consumption and demand as incomes rise with population growth and greater economic prosperity remain. The rise of wealth and spending power result to greater consumer demand and a change in diets require more variety and nutritious food at affordable prices.

The 14th Philippine Food Expo with the theme “Emerging Trends in Food Trade” is scheduled on April 20 to 22 at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City, Manila, Philippines.

As the “Only All-Filipino Food Show” in the country, the event highlights the changes in the food industry that allow companies to adapt to market demands, identify suppliers and partners, and to get to know the Philippine food industry and acquire practices and technologies that will help them become more competitive.

The Philippine Food Processors and Exporters Organization (Philfoodex) Inc. will lead the way through the Philippine Food Expo to ensure that its member companies and exhibiting participants will be exposed to the various opportunities, as well as challenges, that the upcoming ASEAN Economic Community might present.
