Meat and dairy from the UK will be in the spotlight this month at one of the world’s biggest annual food and beverage trade shows held in Dubai.
Thousands of visitors from around the world will get to sample a selection of cheese and lamb from the UK at the 24th edition of Gulfood – which runs from February 17 to 21 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) will once again host its meat and dairy pavilions within their respective halls. Spanning more than a million square feet of food and beverage products and showcases, Gulfood is expected to welcome 98,000 attendees from 193 countries during the five days.
The event will house more than 5,000 exhibitors and 120 country pavilions – displaying products from across eight primary market sectors.
AHDB Senior Export Manager for Dairy Lucy Randolph said: “This is the third year that we have showcased dairy at Gulfood and we are delighted to be returning once again as it’s a key vehicle to help boost our exports.
“At this year’s event, AHDB will be joined by ten producers from the UK who will have the opportunity to exhibit their products on a world-wide platform and meet with potential new customers to help grow their sales overseas.”
The producers joining AHDB include The Fine Cheese Company, Singleton’s Dairy, Somerdale, Coombe Castle, Fayrefield Foods, Rachel’s Dairy, Calon Wen, Daioni Organic, Llaethy Llan and Dairy Partners UK.
