Food ingredients (Fi) Vietnam is the latest event from the Fi Global brand and will take place on 21-23 May 2014 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It is the only food industry exhibition in this region.

Free registration to attend the event is now live at http://www.fi-vietnam.net. Over 2,500 industry professionals from 15+ countries are expected to attend over the 3 days, representing a wide range of industry sectors and industry stakeholders. Combined with a high-level conference on May 22nd in association with VaFoST, Fi Vietnam will also provide opportunities for visitors to learn of industry developments, food safety and key market trends.
Event organisers UBM Asia's (Thailand) Business Director, Rungphech (Rose) Chitanuwat highlights the exclusive nature and importance of Fi Vietnam, commenting: "Fi Vietnam is targeting visitors not only from Vietnam, but throughout the Mekong River Delta Region - Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. The key distinction of the Fi portfolio is that our events are dedicated solely to food ingredients - not finished foods. This allows us to offer a one-stop show for food ingredients with a more focussed approach so we can better meet our client's specific needs and offer them the right ingredients for their success. Customers come to Fi Vietnam looking to do business - they can see, touch, taste and smell food ingredients, experience the latest technologies, and find solutions to formulate products that meet consumer demands. Fi Vietnam is the only route for the food ingredient industry to enter the lucrative Vietnamese market efficiently."
Interest in the Vietnam region is at an all time high and its food and beverage market is growing rapidly. This strong growth, coupled with foreign and local investments, continuing urbanisation, busier lifestyles and a young population has led to a steady projected advancement of 9% forecasted for Vietnamese food consumption over the next 5 years. According to BMI's Q1 2013 Vietnam Food & Drink Report, per capita food consumption is forecast to grow at 8.4% annually up until 2017, with soft drinks and alcoholic drinks growing by 13.7% and 12.3% respectively during the same period. Fi Vietnam provides the only platform for organisations wishing to capitalise on these upward market trends in the unique, emerging destination, Vietnam.
UBM Asia's (Thailand) Business Director, Rungphech (Rose) Chitanuwat further commented, "You will be amazed at what the show can offer, including an unrivalled mix of food ingredient products from leading suppliers. The onsite conference and seminar program titled Enhancing Food Safety in Product Development with Food Ingredients will keep you up to date about industry issues and macro trends and the market outlook for the food ingredients industry. To help you better understand consumers and identify growth opportunities, there will be a session on consumer insights and innovation that will impact marketing strategies, influence consumers' emotions and thus their purchasing decisions."
With just over a month until Fi Vietnam opens its doors, make sure you mark your calendar for 21 - 23 May 2014 for this key industry event in the emerging destination of Vietnam. Further information and registration details can be found on http://www.fi-vietnam.net.
