MANILA, Philippines — A delegation of Philippine food companies generated $23 million worth of export sales from the recent Taipei International Food Show (TIFS), lower than the $26 million target.
According to the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), the Philippine delegation comprised of 11 food firms.
CITEM, the Department of Trade and Industry’s exports promotion arm, organized the Philippine delegation to the TIFS.
While this year’s sales are lower, CITEM considers the country’s participation at the event as a good platform to promote Philippine food products.
“Our goal for this trade show is to promote the Philippines as a viable source of healthier and innovative food products and ingredients to address the growing health trends around the globe,” CITEM executive director Pauline Suaco-Juan said.
