NDO - A number of Vietnamese companies are showcasing their food and beverage products at the Annapoorna World of Food India, which is taking place from September 27-29, at the Bomby Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.

The 13th edition of the Annapoorna World of Food India is an international trade fair for food and beverage trade, catering and the retail market. This year's fair covers an area of 35,000 m2 with the participation of more than 500 companies across the world, including Vietnam, Brazil, Australia, the Republic of Korea, China, Italy, and others.

Vietnamese companies including TKK Foods, RICHY Food Southern, A&B Vietnam Invest JSC, Thanh Hoa Food Co. and the Department of Industry and Trade of Binh Thuan province are showcasing their products, such as confectionary, beverages, fruit juice, energy drinks and dragon fruit with the aim of bringing Vietnamese products closer to the Indian people and importers.

Director of the Department of Industry and Trade of Binh Thuan province, Do Minh Kinh, expressed his hope that Vietnamese firms would seek potential partners and sign trade deals at the event.

The fair is one of the important trade promotion activities between Vietnam and India following the visits to India by the Vietnamese Prime Minister and President earlier this year.

Various activities will be held during the fair including CEO-retail roundtable panel discussions, master classes for cooking and wine pairing, and seminars in the field.
