WorldFood Azerbaijanis an excellent platform for discussing the trends and issues for industry development and for presenting new products and technologies. For the first time, pre-arranged meetings between food suppliers and representatives of retail chains and distributors will take place at the exhibition. The B2B meetings provide an excellent opportunity for managers of food companies and representatives of retail chains to talk face to face, establish business contacts, and come to agreements.
