Tasting the world in the Philippines

Where can you find world-class culinary competitions, a huge bakers’ fair and workshops on the latest food technology? Each year, thousands of food manufacturers, chefs, exporters, restaurant and supermarket owners travel to the World Food Expo in Manila, the Philippines.

Billed as the “ultimate food show experience”, it’s the best place to learn about recent trends and explore opportunities around the world. The show, which ends on Saturday, has to be one of the most delicious places in the world this week! It brings together a huge variety of global food and beverages under one roof, with a packed program of workshops, demonstrations, and seminars.

The sponsors show the huge international range of food on offer: including the U.S. Poultry & Egg Export Council, Meat and Livestock Australia, Danish Lurpak, Dilpah Ceylon tea, and Divella pasta.

Visitors can try samples from all over the world, from Turkish cookies to Thai rice, sushi to samosas, and chocolate to chilli.

One highlight will be the Philippine Culinary Cup, the country’s most prestigious culinary competition. Top chefs will compete with each other in a wide range of categories, from meat and fish to pastries and petits fours. Young chefs can make their mark in the Team Challenge, while baristas will show off their creative skills in the “latte art” competition.

And at the Foodmach Expo, there’ll be a chance to see everything from industrial food machinery to the smartest kitchen gadgets.

Of course, food and drink is a huge global industry, and many exhibitors at the show will be looking for new export opportunities. Lingo24’s team from our Cebu City hub, Jovenir Bataican and Vince Villocino, will be at the show.

They’ll be sharing advice on translation and international marketing – helping provide some of the ingredients to global success.
