Food ingredient Asia in Indonesia to be the Biggest Fi Asia Show Ever

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    Fi Asia, who will debut in Jakarta, Indonesia this September, has been completely

sold out. To monitor the streaming demand, organizers have opened a waiting-list for

exhibiting at the show. More than 200 companies have already secured their platform

to introduce their latest developments to the ASEAN region.

    As well as a host of companies to visit there will also be numerous

educational opportunities available. The Indonesian Association of Food

Technologists will be holding their annual conference alongside Fi Asia,

including various gatherings of food technologists with top-level

international speakers. The body representing food processing - GAPMI - will

hold a members meeting on-site. Additionally, there will be free-of-charge

seminars held by key exhibitors, who will present new products and


    Fi Asia 2010 will run from 29 September - 1 October 2010 at Jakarta

International Expo centre, Jakarta, Indonesia.
