Another highlight of the show is the Kitchen Theater where well-known chefs share their skills to eager visitors as the latest F&B products and techniques are demonstrated throughout the 4-day event.
This year, WOFEX also proudly launches the Philippine Sustainable Gastronomy Congress, to be held August 2 and 3 at the SMX Convention Center, whose objective is to have a continuing conversation on culinary and agricultural tourism and how best to support sustainable farming. Slow Food in the Philippines partners with WOFEX for this Congress as it brings forth relevant issues and distinguished speakers, focusing especially on food as a solution for climate change.
And these are what makes the World Food Expo the ultimate food show experience: diverse exhibition, unconventional education, and intense competition, all seen as WOFEX turns 18.
