Speciality & Fine Food Asia

For the inaugural edition, Speciality & Fine Food Asia (SFFA) and Restaurant, Pub & Bar Asia (RPB Asia) welcomed approximately 3,000 trade visitors through its doors.

In addition to the 161 global exhibitors from 23 countries, buyers were treated to an exciting programme of live demonstrations by acclaimed chefs, sommeliers, tea masters, baristas and bartenders, as well as panel discussions with industry experts and business mentoring sessions where SME experts were on hand to offer free one-to-one advice.

Chefs from newly minted Michelin-starred restaurants, Han Li Guang (Labyrinth) and Sam Aisbett (Whitegrass) presented live cooking demonstrations alongside the headline chef of SFFA, Ray Adriansyah. The chef and co-owner of award-winning Locavore in Bali added that

SFFA has accomplished so much for its inaugural edition in Singapore. It brought together fine food and drink producers from all over the world for a remarkable and enriching time.

Fresh Montgomery, who have been organising the UK edition for the past 18 years, and its sister company Montgomery Asia have designed the trade-only shows to be a focused, thoughtful set-up that is primed for creating the right connections between suppliers and trade buyers to inspire all with innovative ideas.

“We’re proud that the inaugural editions of SFFA and RPB Asia were a tremendous success. The only dedicated B2B trade shows in Asia to provide a platform for seamless sourcing of global brands of speciality produce; F&B buyers, chefs and distributors took this opportunity to network and discover exciting, fresh collaborations with the many suppliers at SFFA and RPB Asia.” - Soraya Gadelrab, Portfolio Director, Fresh Montgomery.

“As the focal point of the Southeast Asian F&B trade show scene, SFFA & RPB Asia will be back for a second run next year from 17-19 July 2018 and it’ll be an even better and bigger showcase of artisan and high-quality products.” 

Local producers took this opportunity to showcase their finest artisanal food and drink products to the Southeast Asian market. Carole Tan, founder of Teaspec commented:

It was a productive three days at the show where we met many quality buyers and distributors. SFFA was a fantastic opportunity for us to expand our network and connect with other F&B professionals in Southeast Asia. With exhibitors and visitors in the foodservice and hospitality industries from UK, Korea and France among many others at the show, we could also tap on different markets that we did not have access to prior to SFFA. As we are currently expanding in the UK, we will be attending the Speciality & Fine Food Fair in London this September as part of our expansion plan; it will hopefully open new doors for us in the UK. Without a doubt, you will also see us at Speciality & Fine Food Asia next year!
