ASEAN Food industries Human resource development association


For the partnership between JAPAN and ASEAN by developing Human Resources in ASEAN countries

It has been an urgent issue to develop Human Resources who will be in charge of our future Food Industries where a lot of food companies have advanced to ASEAN countries.
In order to solve this problem, we launched this project in 2014 with the corporation of Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan, ASEAN Secretariat, Japanese food related companies and Universities in ASEAN region. Also, this project is commemorated the 40th anniversary of friendship and cooperation in JAPAN and ASEAN in 2013.Then, our association was officially established as “afh” (ASEAN FOOD industries HUMAN resource development association) in 1st October 2015.

We would appreciate the great corporations of our supporting companies, and keep contributing the accelerating development between JAPAN and ASEAN areas. It will be grateful of your continued corporation for cultivating our next generation.
