More than 2,000 exhibitors are expected to take part in the four fairs, offering a massive and diverse array of innovative products for public consumers and trade buyers.

The 29th Food Expo will feature a delicious selection of high-quality food and beverage items for everyone, from industry players right through to foodies, including premium products showcased at the Gourmet Zone under four themes of “Western Delicacy”, “Asian Cuisine”, “Sweet Delight” and “Green Palate”.
