Organized by the Department Trade and Industry (DTI) through its Trade Representative Office (PTIC-SV), its marketing arm (CITEM and business arm (PITC),  the country’s participation in the 2014 Winter Fancy Food Show is part of DTI’s efforts to intensify the promotion of Philippine products in overseas trade shows.
