Food expo begins

Leaders in the Kingdom’s food industry will gather next week for the Camfood, Hotel and Camcafe expo.

According to AMB Tarsus Events Group, the organiser of the conference, more than 350 companies from 30 countries in the region will participate.

Exhibitions will showcase local companies operating in the food and beverage supply sector, as well as hospitality equipment providers, according to Andrew Siow, director of AMB Tarsus.

“This is an important event for Cambodia to attract investors and tourists. Cambodia has everything – good food and hospitality services. This event is also a bridge for those who want to find investment partners,” he said.

Rapid local growth

Carrol Sahaidak-Beaver, secretary-general of the Cambodia Tourism Federation said in the last four years, restaurants, cafés and hotels have grown rapidly in Cambodia. Along with that growth, quality and food safety is also important.

“The participants of the event will gain a lot of experience from experts in food preparation, food tastes, how to provide the hospitality and proper sanitation,” she said.

The expo kicks off on September 19 and runs for three days.
