It's the 6th year of the biggest and most awaited food event of the year, the Manila Foods and Beverages Expo (MAFBEX). Headlining with its theme "Back to Basics" this year, the grand expo is happening at the World Trade Center, extending to the East Wing on June 13 to 17, 2012 from 10am-8pm.
This 2012, MAFBEX has decided to go back to basics, as the rise of health-conscious Filipinos have grown tremendously over the years. Putting the spotlight on organic foods, this expo aims to provide tips and tricks to widen the knowledge of people to live a healthier lifestyle.
Some of the highlights of the 6th MAFBEX are the following:

- Interesting free food- and hospitality-related seminars by the industry's bests (e.g. food styling, corporate image enhancement, cooking for VIPs, advancements in food preservation, catering, etc.)
- Food samples and talks on cooking techniques, ingredients from renowned local and international chefs
- Displays and showcases from suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, and retailers of food and beverage products and equipment
- Competitions showcasing new generation skills (e.g. flairing, table setups, mocktail punch, cake decorating, ice carving, etc.)
- Imported goods at discounted prices
- Raffle prizes
