Under Taipei Food Show Umbrella, the trade exhibit will house several halls that will feature the following categories: Foodtech & Pharmatech Taipei, Taipei Pack, Taiwan HORECA and Halal Taiwan. Organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), Food Taipei aims to link the entire food industry supply chain in Taiwan with the global market.
In 2018, the Taipei Food Show joint expo created an outstanding record of 1,628 exhibitors and 4,059 booths in 2018. (Food Taipei had 1,079 exhibitors and 2,197 booths). The FoodPhilippines exhibitors last year booked initial sales commitments totaling over US$25 Million, not counting repeat orders.
“This year, our participation at the Taipei Food Show, will feature a strategically curated selection of Philippine food manufacturers and exporters eyeing the 24 million Taiwanese market, and Taiwan as gateway to other advanced economies in East Asia targeted for a sustainable marketing reach and campaign,” said MECO Chairman and Resident Representative Angelito T. Banayo.
