It is leading 46 Singaporean food and beverage companies exhibiting at Gulfood 2019. Nearly half of the companies are launching food products that are new to either the UAE or the Middle East region.

Gulfood, as a leading trade show in Dubai, is an excellent platform for companies to understand the latest market trends, connect with food traders and distributors not just from the Middle East but worldwide, and to forge meaningful business partnerships.”

The UAE ranked among the top three food export destinations in region last year. Enterprise Singapore successfully facilitated 28 partnerships between local food companies with franchisees and distributors in the Middle East in 2018 alone. Currently, more than 30 Singapore food companies are doing business in the region.

In addition, there is ‘supermarket aisle’ concept, which displays the full variety of Singapore food brands exhibiting at Gulfood 2019, including products that are new to the market.
