The first-ever ASEAN leg of the Salon International de I’Agroalimentaire or SIAL held last year has left an indelible mark as it hosted the biggest and most comprehensive food exposition in the region. Since then, the local food industry has never been the same as it enjoys a growing network of promising connections with local and foreign food companies alike.

To pick up where it left off, a bigger and bolder SIAL ASEAN returns on June 17 to 19 at the World Trade Center Metro Manila for its second edition and brings with it fresh new flavors and sumptuous insights into the trends that continuously shape the global food industry.

From impressive product displays and live demonstrations to highly anticipated programs such as the La Cuisine and the line-up of seminars, SIAL ASEAN is also known for serving as a platform to showcase the most innovative products available in the market through the SIAL Innovation Awards.

Held in partnership with XTC World Innovation, a premiere innovation expert, the competition not only provides much-deserved exposure for the most innovative products but also serves as a springboard in which food professionals can get exclusive access to a global panorama of the latest food products.

After a jury including Xavier Terlet, the president of XTC, Eric Salta, Managing Editor of F&B Report and Nina Daza Puyat, EIC of Appetite Magazine, carefully evaluated each entry from here and abroad, 9 products were chosen, for their unique innovation to the food market, to be exhibited at the SIAL Innovation area for the duration of the event.

SIAL Innovation is the embodiment of SIAL’s mission – to elevate the global food industry by showcasing the best of what the food market has to offer. Organized by Comexposium and Mafbex Events Management, a subsidiary of the country’s leading events organizer, Worldbex Services International.
