Was able to meet various producers of innovative products for organic vitamines, natural coloring for the food indistry mostly for bread baker, seasoning etc... also visited producers of equipment for coffee roasting, fruits drying etc... overall very instructive. When is the next expo date as I planned to send in a large delegation across various food industry sectors.
