VIV Asia 2019_Halls overview (11)

The full spectrum of food processing and packaging technologies come together at Meat Pro Asia. Held from 2023 onwards in Bangkok, the biennial fair offers unrivaled access to market opportunities not just in Thailand, but across the entire ASEAN region and its more than 600 million people. Within the context of the local government’s plan to turn Thailand into one of the world's top five food exporters by 2036, Meat Pro Asia is uniquely positioned as the only major event dedicated to food processing in the country, making it the perfect launching pad for channel players to gain a foothold in this fast growing sector. 

Exhibitors include manufacturers and suppliers of everything from slaughtering and processing equipment, to packaging and transportation solutions. Co-located with VIV Asia – the no.1 international trade show from Feed to Food in Asia – the fair is expected to attract 10,000 trade buyers in 2025. Thanks to its positioning alongside one of Thailand’s biggest food related shows, the fair offers buyers comprehensive sourcing opportunities across the entire supply chain.
