The event was held every year between 2015 and 2019, but 2022 will be the first exhibition for three years after being suspended in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Toppan will present the Toppan Group’s sustainable packaging supply capabilities, barrier packaging, including GL BARRIER,1 and other solutions to food producers, other end users, and packaging manufacturers from Vietnam and Southeast Asia.

Joining Vietnam’s biggest food expo will help us raise the profile of Toppan’s sustainable and other packaging products and expand our business. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Toppan booth.”
