Ensuring food security in today`s realities is one of the priorities for sustainable development. Many challenges as climate change, shifting established supply routes, changing market conditions, and population growth make it very relevant to hold UzFood exhibition, which represents the entire production chain - from field and farm to food products, including processing, packaging and storage.

For more than two decades, UzFood has been the leading exhibition of the food industry, acting as an effective platform for implementation of programme measures taken by the Government of Uzbekistan to develop the industry, support and promote the domestic production. At the same time, the goals of the exhibition fully coincide with the ongoing programs aimed primarily at providing the population with food, as well as to assist domestic businesses to develop their production using modern technologies, and to establish export supplies.
