This 23rd, 24th and 25th August, the BMICH Exhibition Centre will be transformed into the largest supermarket and trade fair Sri Lanka has ever witnessed. Comprising processed food, beverage, packaging and agriculture, the 12th annual Pro Food/Pro Pack show together with the 8th annual Agbiz exhibition is set to take the city by storm as it welcomes one and all into the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall. With a title themed ‘From the Farm to the Kitchen’, the show will be guaranteed to take you on a culinary journey unlike any other. This popular exhibition will showcase products and services of each and every component in the processed foods and packaging industry. From the birth of a product to its final stage of completion, you will be granted a first-hand look at the intricate mechanisms that go into the making of the food you eat and the products you buy. The event last year attracted over 40,000 visitors who gathered under a single platform to network and exchange ideas on their favourite products. Special discounts were on offer for favourite brands of food and drink, which made the fair ‘the’ must visit destination with everyone choosing to do their weekly shopping at this one-stop-wonder store.
