April 15, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

The Dubai Airport Freezone Authority (DAFZA) is participating in the Alimentaria 2018 Exhibition, the international business event geared towards professionals in the food, drinks and gastronomy industry, being held from April 16-19 at the Gran Via Venue, Barcelona. DAFZA will be showcasing its wide range of services and offerings in the Halal sector, and is sponsoring the exhibition’s Halal section

The Halal sector is rapidly growing both in Europe and internationally with more than 1.7 billion consumers, equivalent to a quarter of the world’s population, and is expected to reach 2.2 billion by 2030. Halal products account for about 16% of global food and beverage consumption, contributing around €40 billion to the European economy.

Through its participation, DAFZA will display a wide range of services it offers to specialised companies in the food and beverage industry, particularly focusing on the Halal sector as part of its overarching theme of ‘Gateway to Growth’. DAFZA will showcase its unique facilities and infrastructure and how it can facilitate businesses’ entry into the UAE and support them in launching their business to help reach regional markets.

Commenting on the participation, Amna Lootah, assistant director general – finance, commercial & customer relations division foster of DAFZA Innovation & Future Unit, says, “Participating in one of the largest international food and beverage exhibitions, especially for investors from Europe and the Mediterranean region, represents a strategic step for us. We aim to introduce attendees to Dubai’s unique business opportunities and investor-friendly environment.”

“We decided to sponsor the Alimentaria 2018 Halal section due to the experience and expertise we have in the industry, and the Islamic economy sector in general. Our sponsorship and participation are in line with our strategy to attract more foreign direct investment to the Islamic economy and Halal sectors through strategic initiatives such as the Halal Industry Guide,” she adds.
