Experts from multinationals Nestle, Unilever, Kraft Foods, Procter & Gamble, and Colgate-Palmolive will be at hand to give business tips, while over a hundred suppliers will display products in 350 booths at the exhibition area.  Special booths will be reserved for overseas Filipino workers who may wish to put up a small-scale business.
