The first edition of SIAL InterFOOD Jakarta, held last November, has been a promising success, and Indonesia fulfilled its role as a gateway to South East Asia.
Almost 40,000 visitors from 39 countries and over 800 exhibitors from 21 countries attended the business-to-business food and beverage event, which was divided into 27 product and service categories.
The three-day program included seminars and in-kitchen demos by renowned food service professionals, a showcase of the latest innovations and several competitions for cooks, bartenders and baristas. The international bakery competition ‘Louis Lesaffre Cup’ saw China and South Korea securing a spot in the World Finals, to be held in France next February.
SIAL InterFOOD will come back in 2016 for its second edition, scheduled from 9 to 12 November.
