 The show was co-organised by the Department of International Trade Promotion, The Thai Chamber of Commerce and Koelnmesse Pte Ltd, the event drew together top international food and beverage brands and provided visitors with access to over 45,000 industry professionals.

 The show culminated in a total of 55,111 visitors from 130 countries – a huge 30 percent increase from 2016.

 This impactful show showcased the synergistic partnership between the government and private sector to address growing food and beverage demands and concerns in Asia, this show was the 14th edition of the conference.

 Visitors to the show were treated to a wide array of food products and technologies, but also access to insights that could help extend their businesses throughout Asean and beyond.

 Mathias Kuepper, Managing Director, Koelnmesse, organiser for Thaifex- World of Food Asia 2017 commented, “The record-breaking number of visitors is testament to the fact that the food and beverage industry continues to see the trade show as the place to be. This year’s show proved to be more than just a platform for networking between buyers and exhibitors, but also an avenue for everyone to collaborate, share thoughts and exchange knowledge about issues facing the industry.”

 Acknowledging the huge potential in Asia for Western products, Scottish Development International’s Head of Southeast Asia, Neil Mcinnes remarked, “We have been seeing an increase in demand from Thailand and Asia as a whole for Scottish products, ranging from Scottish smoked salmon and seafood to shortbread, biscuits, cheese and craft beer.
