Ho Chi Minh City's Food and Foodstuff Association has signed an agreement with exhibition organiser UBM Asia to promote its activities and help its member companies find partners.
Ly Kim Chi, Chairwoman of the Association, said the agreement is very important since food and foodstuff producers in Vietnam find it difficult to source ingredients locally because of a dearth of producers, and UBM can put them on to foreign suppliers of new food spices and additives.
UBM is highly experienced in the industry and had links with many international food ingredient producers, she said.
From May 20 to 22 this year it will organise Food Ingredients (Fi) Vietnam 2015 in HCM City with an estimated 150 local, regional and international ingredient suppliers and 4,000 food and beverage professionals attending.
