Returning after nearly 3 years of interruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic, SIAL Shanghai 2023 has become one of the leading events for organizations and businesses operating in the food industry worldwide and in China. 

With an exhibition area of up to 180,000m², SIAL Shanghai 2023 attracts about 4,500 international companies to display their products in 12 specialized exhibition areas for comprehensive imported food products, health foods, premium beverages, fast food, fresh meat, frozen food, supply chains for agricultural products, packaging and processing, and national booths. The exhibition is expected to have about 150,000 visitors seeking opportunities for cooperation.

This aims to support and promote Vietnam’s food and beverage products in the world market.

Located in a central position within the national pavilion area, the Vietnam Pavilion was quickly recognized and the products of Vietnamese businesses easily caught the attention of not only visitors from China but also many countries around the world.
