Gulfood 2018

Feb 18 - 22, 2018

Sunday-Thursday
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Trade Show - International

The United Arab Emirates is a very attractive market for SUSTA region companies. Since 2005 SUSTA has organized activities in this market. More recently in both 2016 and 2017, SUSTA had 17 exhibitors at Gulfood. One of the richest countries in the world, the UAE is also a major transport hub in the region thus offering great sales opportunities across the Gulf region for US suppliers. Also, the great number of tourists and businesspeople coming into the country make this market attractive. According to United Nations trade data, total imports into the United Arab Emirates in 2015 were approximately $287 billion. Total exports were approximately $333.4 billion and re-exports were approximately 60 billion.

The United Arab Emirates and other neighboring countries (Gulf-Cooperation Council 4) are required to import nearly 90 percent of their food and feed needs, including raw materials for further processing. The value of total agricultural exports from the United States to the United Arab Emirates in 2015 was nearly $1.3 billion. All value-added food categories have potential in this market and these are some of the products with the best sales potential: almonds, beef, poultry, snack foods, health foods, edible oils, cheeses, fruit and vegetable juices, condiments, sauces, breakfast cereals, confectionary products, frozen vegetables, pulses, planting seeds, sweeteners, beverages (non-alcoholic), pet foods, and rice.
