GHI World Congress on Food Safety and Security @ Leiden, The Netherlands
Mar 24 – Mar 28 all-day

On 24 – 28 March 2019, the Global Harmonization Initiative (GHI) organises the 1st GHI World Congress on Food Safety and Security in Leiden, The Netherlands. The congress brings together leading scientists, researchers and research scholars from academia and industry, decision makers from international organisations, and the public from across the globe to advance the conversation about the vital role of modern science in food legislation and regulation.


One of the major problems in food safety and security regulation is that many existing laws, rules and guidelines are originated from decades-old data and methods, several of which are not even relevant to human exposure. Food safety and security regulations should be changed and revised on the basis of updated and validated assays.


The 1st GHI World Congress generates a platform to present and implement the most suitable assays for food safety and security assessment within different fields—from chemistry and microbiology, to genetic toxicology and genomics—throughout entire processes, from farm to fork. The congress seeks to help declare and establish new directions in ensuring food safety and security throughout supply chains and throughout the world. The outcomes can pave the way toward more accurate detection of human risk to dietary components and thus, improve human health status. Our intention is to produce a declaration that is agreed by all participants which calls for and establishes a target to change regulations within a specified time based on available knowledge.

World Food Expo Philippines @ SMX Convention Center Manila
Aug 7 – Aug 10 all-day
World Food Expo Philippines @ SMX Convention Center Manila

WOFEX (World Food Expo)

Simultaneously occupying the two biggest venues in the country, the World Trade Center and the SMX Convention Center, WOFEX successfully covers the trade to consumer markets by properly segmenting the two venues.

For the past 18 years, WOFEX has consistently innovated into becoming the biggest and most effective trade show in the country. The rise of World Food Expo was a product of deliberate efforts to always deliver a trade show that is better than the last one.

Now after reaching its landmark 18th year, we are about to make the biggest changes to the event. In 2019, get ready for WOFEX : The Evolution!

Finally, we will put the different sectors into a more defined space. With WOFEX as the umbrella brand for the show, we will now have the following sub-events:


FoodPackPro brings a comprehensive line up of products and services related to food packaging, processing, manufacturing and handling.


FoodServe will showcase the foodservice industry’s equipment, kitchenware, bakeware and smallwares needs; from the front to the back of the house.


FineFoods highlights the very best food and beverages from all over the world that are available in the market today.


The Hotel Summit & Expo continues to integrate the country’s growing food & hospitality industry – from rooms, to dining outlets, to recreational facilities.


Now on its 10th year, WOFEX shall continue to be host to the most prestigious culinary competition in the country today with its Philippines Culinary Cup, the country’s only culinary competition certified by WACS or the World Association of Chefs Societies. The Philippine Culinary Cup : Where The Best Meet To Compete.


Advanced education beyond what is learned from the classroom is what WOFEX University has been offering nationwide. By inviting industry practitioners with a wealth of first-hand experiences, the learning is richer, the sharing more valuable, and the content more relevant to the food service professionals.


Product-led demonstrations are an integral part of WOFEX as it gives the visitors a chance to learn more about the products and services that are currently available in the market today. With kitchen celebrities at the helm of the presentations, the Kitchen Theater is much anticipated in the 4-day run of the show. Best of all, it’s free of charge.


Industry-Centric conferences, forums and workshops is what World Food Summit offers. With the need to shed the spotlight on important world issues, the Summit has become an effective avenue in discussing trends, problems and solutions of associations or organizations that affect their industries.

These are very exciting times for WOFEX and the country’s F&B stakeholders. With this strategic approach we hope to further bring in world-class standards that will make our exhibitor’s participation even more fruitful and our visitors’ experience even more productive.
