The expo has been co-organised by Informa Markets, the Food and Foodstuff Association of Ho Chi Minh City (FFA), and the Vietnam Association of Food Science and Technology (VAFoST).

Furthermore, it also offers a gateway to the country’s thriving food and beverage ingredients market.

During the event, several technical seminars and international conferences will also be held, including a business-matching programme, the Ingredients for Innovations Conference hosted by VAFoST, and the annual VAFoST Young Achievers’ Safe Food Awards.
