Annual event links the entire food industry chain from top to bottom while bringing in the industry chain of related equipment
The Super 5-in-1 Food Expo, one of the biggest food industry events in Asia, begins today and spans four days at Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 1 and Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 1. The expo not only links the entire food industry chain from top to bottom, it also brings in the industry chain of related equipment through the Taipei International Food Show, FoodTech and Pharmatech Taipei, Taipei Pack, Taipei International Hotel, Restaurant and Catering Show and Taiwan International HALAL Expo.
The leaders in the five industries will congregate at the events, with 1,717 exhibitors from 36 countries and regions at 4,011 booths making this year’s show the largest in its history. The scale demonstrates the growth potential of Taiwan’s food industry development. Organizers expect the five-in-one expo to attract over 67,000 foreign and domestic buyers and spark an unprecedented upsurge in procurement for the industry.
The Taipei International Food Show is the most prominent stage for showcasing Taiwan’s agriculture, aquatic, frozen and processed food products as well as machinery and packaging equipment to worldwide markets. With an influx of strong-performing domestic exhibitors, some 30 percent of this year’s exhibitors are newcomers — demonstrating the vitality and innovation in Taiwan’s food industry.
The Taiwan Pavilion, organized by the Council of Agriculture, is themed “The Best Foods in Taiwan” and selects new products to showcase, such as ginger black tea and prepackaged porcini mushroom risotto sauce. Featured quality agricultural products from Yunlin, Kaohsiung, Tainan, Hualien, Taitung and Chiayi will also be on the menu.
Exhibitors at this year’s expo hail from a multitude of regions, including the U.S., Canada, Japan, South Korea, Europe, and Central and South America. Italy, Portugal and the Baltics will make their debut appearances at the expo this year. Each country is pulling out their best featured products to present, like Aegean Sea olive oil, tart Michigan cherries, organic Italian chocolate, North American ginseng, Belgian fries and Central American coffee.
A smart machine product contest will also be held during the FoodTech and Pharmatech Taipei show, where products that are able to perform with Productivity 4.0 and smart capabilities will be selected, showing international buyers how Taiwan-made equipment can meet the demands of the swiftly changing market. With the rise of ASEAN countries facilitating the development of the region’s food industries, demand for food processing and packaging machinery is also increasing, resulting in surging business opportunities for Taiwanese businesses seeking to enter foreign markets.
Held at the same time is the Taiwan International HALAL Expo, the country’s sole professional expo for halal-certified food products. Due to the rigorous certification process, halal certification is also considered a food safety guarantee. This year’s show sees participants from Indonesia, India, Turkey, mainland China and Iran. Halal-related logistics companies are also presenting at the show, meaning that all equipment and facilities used during the shipping of products — including warehouses, vehicles, machinery and conveyor belts — are prohibited from coming into contact with non-halal materials. The HALAL expo’s expansion from tangible food products and products to the non-tangible logistics services symbolizes the capabilities and diversity of Taiwan’s enterprises in developing the country’s halal export industry.
The Super 5-in-1 Food Expo is the preferred platform for buyers from various fields to procure equipment and search for new products. It has also become a can’t-miss event for those in every part of the Chinese food industry. Visit www.foodtaipei.com.tw for more information.
