The 27th VietFood, Beverage and Professional Packing Machines (VietFood & Beverage – ProPack) International Exhibition will take place in Ho Chi Minh City from August 10-12 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC).

The annual event will be held by the Vietnam National Trade Fair and Advertising Company (Vinexad) under the Ministry of Industry and Trade in Ho Chi Minh City in August and Hanoi in November.

Covering 20,000 sq.m, the exhibition will showcase agro-forestry-aquatic products, beverages, nutritional foods, supplements and food additives at 750 booths by 650 businesses coming from 18 countries and territories, including India, China, the Republic of Korea, and Singapore, among others.

Vinexad said the exhibition will offer chances for domestic and foreign firms to access markets, popularise products, and strengthen the brands.

The event is expected to help businesses explore the market demands and design their development strategies and optimise the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA).

In the 26th edition in 2022, the expo attracted nearly 17,000 visitors including stakeholders in the sector, importers, distributors, retailers, and shoppers.

According to Vietnam Report’s survey in August 2022, nearly 90% of food businesses have achieved over 80% productivity compared to the pre-COVID-19 period, of which 60% of the firms have exceeded productivity levels before the pandemic./.
