In its efforts to support the F&B industry recover post-COVID-19, the Dubai Chamber forms Restaurants Business Group. The new organisation will support the restaurant sector in Dubai by unifying the voices of member companies. The business group, operating as a non-profit body under the umbrella of the Dubai Chamber, will serve common interests and tackle sector challenges through cooperation with relevant authorities in the emirate.
Joined by a wide variety of restaurant businesses in Dubai, the Restaurants Business Group seeks to provide a platform for member companies to share knowledge and make policy recommendations, with the aim of improving ease of doing business in the sector.
Mubarak Bin Fahad, owner of The Tashas Group is appointed as the chairman of the Restaurants Business Group. Founding executive committee members were also selected, as the Restaurants Business Group outlined its objectives and plans for 2020.
As the Dubai Chamber forms Restaurants Business Group, Hamad Buamim, president & CEO of Dubai Chamber, said that this comes at the right time as the business community is dealing with the impact of COVID-19. As restaurants re-open under new guidelines, the Restaurants Business Group will play an essential role in addressing common issues and helping industry players navigate new challenges and adjust to the new normal.
On his part, Fahd noted that in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, industry players are coming together to address common challenges, embracing innovation and creating new delivery platforms. “The Dubai Restaurants Business Group will help this cause, bringing the private and public sectors closer together to create a sustainable and even more positive future for the F&B industry in the city. Dubai is the leading food destination in the world, and I am proud to be part of this exciting phase in its development. Together we will not only get the industry back on track, but forge a new and exciting future.”
