cocoa processing

This year FIE is held in the spectacular and breathtaking ancient Hindu Kingdom of Malaysia. The city Kuala Lumpur will be the host FIE Asia 2005 from 27th – 29th September. The venue is held here as business is a focal point in the Far East. The city has modern, towering buildings, which symbolise the cosmopolitan future. Although some people say it has lost its ancient cultural look, it is a magnificent meeting place for the business class and tourists. Here we combine business with a spellbinding culture. Exhibitors and visitors will never forget this lifetime experience. It is an excellent chance for the nation to see how this culture lives.

This issue will enlighten us with new technology and the scientifically proven problems of the world. Ingredients and products are taken away and tested to make them healthier for the world and the people in it.
