The 23rd VietFood, Beverage and Professional Packing Machines (VietFood & Beverage - ProPack) exhibition will take place at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City from August 7 to 10.

The exhibition is being organized by Vinexad Co. in close cooperation with the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and the Food Standards Committee (CODEX Vietnam).

Vietfood & Beverage - Propack will create a venue to expand cooperation and promote and introduce Vietnamese products. It is also an opportunity for Vietnamese enterprises to expand cooperation, promote production joint ventures, and apply advanced science and technology as well as modern management from foreign partners.

At the same time, the foreign business community will be able to seek opportunities and build investment cooperation in food and beverage production and processing in Vietnam.

With a total area of 15,000 sq m, the exhibition this year is expected to attract more than 18,000 visitors, with the participation of nearly 600 enterprises from 22 countries and territories in food, seafood, beverages, nutritional food, medicinal food, raw materials, food additives, machinery manufacturing and packaging, food preservation, and franchising.

Consumers nowadays prefer clean, organic, environmentally-friendly food, and Vietfood & Beverage - Propack 2019 will have stalls of organic and natural food from prestigious domestic and foreign enterprises.

The exhibition is a good opportunity for foreign businesses to cooperate in production investment at industrial parks, seek distribution partners and agents for clean products in Vietnam, and encourage domestic enterprises to adapt to the commercial “playground” of the food and beverage industry.

There were 425 enterprises at VietFood & Beverage - ProPack 2016, 500 in 2017, and 550 in 2018. The proportion of foreign enterprises is increasing significantly.

Some 41 per cent of enterprises in 2016 were from overseas, or 178, while 59 per cent were from overseas in 2018, or 326. These figures are directly proportional to the growth in Vietnam’s food and beverage market.
