About Us

FOODPhilippines gathers chefs, industry experts, and food enthusiasts worldwide to share insights and news on Filipino food.

The community platform features stories on Philippine ingredients, flavors, processes and techniques, recipes, heritage, culinary talents, and regional specialties.


As an initiative of the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), FOODPhilippines spotlights the country’s rich culinary landscape to build buzz and spark conversations about Philippine food products.

For interests beyond leisure, FoodPhilippines also links to CITEM’s online sourcing destination for quality food products, IFEXConnect.com.

The Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM) is the export promotion arm of the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

The agency organizes local trade events and leads country delegations in overseas trade fairs around the world to promote Philippine export products and services from various local industries.

CITEM’s digital trade and community platforms allow Philippine companies to expand their reach and tap newfound markets. The agency provides seamless and enhanced sourcing experiences for international buyers through online catalogues, business-to business matching activities, export-oriented webinars, and other experiential promotional events.”
