Philippines’ participation in FOODEX

Known as the largest food and beverage exhibition in the Asian region, FOODEX is known as a major gateway to the Japanese market.

Aside from Japan, FOODEX is also vastly participated in by buyers from major regions such as Europe, America, Africa, and Australia.

In 2017, the four-day event welcomed over 3,000 local and international exhibitors, as well as more than 82,000 buyers from the food manufacturing, service, distribution, and trading sectors across the global food industry.

Japan is the Philippines’ largest export destination for fresh foods and the second largest market for processed food, next to the United States. According to preliminary reports from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), Japan is among the top export destinations of the country with 16.42% total share to total merchandise exports of the country for the period of January to November 2017.

With the existing Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA), Japan provides an attractive and vast market for Philippine food suppliers to serve the retail, food service, and manufacturing industries.
