At Gulfood, our aim is to increase the market share of Halal-certified products, from 3.45% to 5% which is valued at US$118,500.00 total Philippine exports to the Middle East. And with our new line of healthy food products, we will position our country as a reliable source of high-quality food products in the MENASA market. – CITEM Executive Director Ms. Rosvi C. Gaetos

Part of the country’s objective as well is to increase awareness of the country’s collective brand Food Philippines, which carries the power fruits and other healthy, natural and organic food and beverage Philippine products.
