The 21st VietFood, Beverage and Professional Packing Machines (VietFood & Beverage – ProPack) international exhibition will take place at the Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre in HCM City from August 9 to 12.
Vietnamese firms account for about half of the 500 participants this year, and their key products include tea, coffee, dried fruit and beer.
The organising board said some veteran foreign participants, including those from Taiwan, Thailand, Poland and South Korea, wish to expand their display space this year.
Poland will treat visitors to clean farming solutions and fresh fruit and dairy products. The South Korea will occupy 70 stalls at the fair by enterprises producing agricultural products, financial and insurance services.
The board named several newcomers from abroad, including the Czech Republic, the United Arab Emirates, Brazil and France.
Workshops will be held on the sidelines of the exhibition, with discussions covering food & beverage retail in Viet Nam and management skills for businesses in the sector, among other topics. — VNS
