DLSU-D students from the College of Tourism and Hospitality Management (CTHM) proved their skills against other competing schools at the prestigious Manila Food and Beverage Expo 2017. CTHM students ruled in three events and bagged the silver and bronze prize for two others.

This year's Manila Foods and Beverages Expo (Mafbex) was held at the World Trade Center from June 13-18 for another unforgettable gastronomic presentation of the country’s finest flavors. In recent years, MAFBEX has continued to be hailed as the biggest and most sought-after food expo; one wherein friends and families may gather round to explore new tastes and flavors as well as enjoy other fun and exciting food-related events and activities.

This time around, MAFBEX's theme centered on a sense of adventure not only among foodies but also within communities of trade professionals who are looking to explore business opportunities within the F&B industry.
