I have heard of Alimentaria as a show for quality product but have not actually visited the show. When the Hosted Buyer programme reached out to me, I decided to squeeze Alimentaria into my travel schedule this year and forgo an Asian show as I am currently sourcing for both Singapore and Malaysia.

It will be my first time at Alimentaria, but the show is very familiar to me as I have received the best reviews from colleagues in terms of organisation, quality of the venue and exhibitors, so I am looking forward to making great contacts that will lead to excellent bi-national business relationships.
