The occasion will represent the most important annual forum for exhibitors as they follow up on current local food trends and relevant government policies. In addition, it will offer a platform to share knowledge and experience relating to the food industry, solutions to enhance the value chain, and develop market for the Vietnamese food industry.

The first Vietnam Foodexpo got underway in 2015 as part of a national trade promotion programme run by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT). The annual expo was held virtually in 2020 and 2021 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
