“Thailand is the trading hub of Southeast Asia region, and that is the main reason for visitors to come to THAIFEX-World of Food Asia. As one of the biggest food exhibitions in Thailand, it is a good platform for us to promote our new and innovative products and ideas to the visitors. Through the sponsorship of the Thailand Ultimate Chef Challenge, we hope to educate the chefs and visitors on different methods of preparation of our products.”

"We are the world’s largest producer of farmed salmon, and we see an increased interest from Thai importers and Norwegian exporters into Asia. There is a lot of positivity on the show, from all 10 Norwegian companies, as there were a lot of trade visitors from all over the regions. We see this as an opportunity to promote Salmon, and to teach the young and upcoming chefs on the benefits of Salmon and how to use them, and eventually to promote to the consumers. All the companies are discussing ways to improve next year’s participation. This is a good way to reach out, not just to Thailand but other regional markets.
Jon Erik Steenslid | Director South-East Asia | Norwegian Seafood Council
“This is the 5th time that we are returning to World of Seafood, and this is a good platform for us to promote our products. Last year, we made a huge profit of USD15 million from the fair, and this is definitely a pull factor for us. Thailand is one of the largest and most important market for our company, where we introduce our seaweed products. This year, we are focusing on healthy food such as Pollock and we have achieved good results for the new products. The specialized product segment is an added bonus, as it helps visitors to locate us easily.”

Christoph Ziegler, Head of Sales Business Unit Coffee, Buhler AG.
