HCM CITY – Companies from 20 countries will participate in the second Food Ingredients Viet Nam exhibition in HCM City from May 20 to 22.
They will showcase many kinds of ingredients with the main aim of supplying to Vietnamese companies.
According to the oganiser, UBM Asia, the first exhibition held last year was very successful.
While last year most of the ingredients on show related to flavours and colours, this year there will be more health-related ingredients and halal stuff, according to UBM.
"Four thousand visitors are expected to visit the exhibition," it said, adding that this year would see the participations of Chinese companies and others from the EU and ASEAN.
The organisers are hoping that with many of the companies now knowing each other after last year, the second event will be more successful.
Besides the display of products and co-operation opportunities, the exhibition will also feature exhibitions and seminars about the food sector. – VNS
