SINGAPORE — A dozen or so Vietnamese businesses are displaying their products at the ongoing Asia-Pacific Food Expo (APFE) in Singapore.
The four-day expo, which ends today, is seen as a good opportunity for Vietnamese firms to identify new partners and expand partnerships to expand exports to Singapore and other markets in the region.
Participating firms are focused mostly on trading in rice, coffee, seafood, vegetables, fruits and food products.
Organised by the Singapore Food Manufacturers’ Association, this year’s event has drawn the participation of firms from 10 countries and territories: China, India, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Việt Nam and Taiwan.
The expo features nearly 200 booths on a 12,500sq.m area, presenting a wide range of processed food, beverages, confectionery, frozen food, ice cream, milk products, food materials, tea, coffee, seafood, poultry products, vegetables and fruits, and spices.
Organisers expect the expo to attract 400,000 visitors. — VNS
