Exporters seek more food sales from UAE
A total of 26 Philippine-based exporters recently participated in Gulfood 2017, the world’s largest food and beverage exhibit in Dubai, in order to continue growing the demand for Filipino food and beverage in the United Arab Emirates.
Exporters are optimistic that negotiated sales will surpass last year’s $109 million.
Philippine Consul General in Dubai Paul Raymund Cortes expressed hope that Philippine participation in the event will raise awareness and demand for Philippine food products in Dubai.
Cortes said the Philippines’ campaign to introduce Philippine food products and cuisine and promote and assist small and medium enterprises (SMEs) includes participation in events like Gulfood.
