A warm welcome to Chefs and Professionals from all over the world!


With great excitement, we welcome you to the 20th edition of THAIFEX – Anuga Asia and the Thailand Ultimate Chef Challenge (TUCC). This year, over 50,000 trade visitors and 2,000 exhibitors from more than 120 countries will come together and celebrate the region’s leading, and most diverse food show.


The Thailand Ultimate Chef Challenge (TUCC) is a significant part of THAIFEX – Anuga Asia and a highly anticipated event in the culinary industry, both in Thailand and globally. With increasing international participation, this year’s TUCC is set to showcase more global influences. Chefs from all over are eager to unleash their passion and creativity at the competition, especially after a 3-year pandemic break.


Exhibitors too, strive to be part of TUCC as it provides an exceptional chance to connect with leading chefs who can bring their products to new heights. I hope everyone participating in this event will take some time to connect with our exhibitors and forge new collaborations and partnerships.


Once again, we welcome you to the TUCC and THAIFEX – Anuga Asia!


Yours sincerely,

Mathias Kuepper
