IFEX Philippines is the country’s biggest international trade exhibition on the Philippines’ and Asia's ethnic and specialty food, tropical fruits, vegetables, seafood, beverages, bakery and confectionery products, meat and poultry, Halal-certified products, as well as natural, organic, and healthy food products.

Since its inception originally as the Asian Ethnic Food Festival from 1999 to 2003, IFEX Philippines has provided a business-to-business platform for local and international food companies to discover new markets, launch new products, and transact with the world’s biggest buyers.

The Katha Awards Food (formerly known as Trendy Awards) pays homage to newly developed Philippine food products and food applications that satisfy three major criteria: Packaging Design and Innovation; Product Innovation, and Market Demand and readiness.
