  • Asia Food Congress & Awards

Welcome to

~ Concept Note ~

The Asia Food Congress & Awards were created to redefine 'Good Food' as being tasty, authentic and responsible. We aim to set criteria for entry that are realistic and inclusive of food and drink producers who have demonstrated a commitment to be part of building a tasty. Authentic and responsible food system, going far above and beyond the status quo for their industry, while not making them so strict that eligible participants are limited to a small handful of products. The Awards are rooted in a belief that by being inclusive, our food system will more closely embody the principles of taste, authenticity and responsibility more quickly.
