The Victorian Government will lead a trade mission to Gulfood, Dubai from 18 – 22 February 2018.
In a market valued at more than $5 trillion globally, Gulfood is the world’s largest annual food trade fair, it has 95,000 visitors with 5000 exhibitors across eight food sectors.
Gulfood attracts trade visitors from not only the Gulf Region, but wider Middle East and North Africa, Europe and Asia. Dubai is a global trading hub and ideal destination for export of food products for retail and food service.
The Victorian Government will have three stands at Gulfood, in the world food, dairy and beverage halls. Delegates will have the opportunity to exhibit products at Gulfood and meet with buyers and visitors to the show.
The Victorian Government Trade and Investment offices in each region will invite targeted buyers who have indicated a specific interest in Australian products. Mission participants will also be invited to participate in networking events with key decision makers from UAE food and beverage industries.
Interested export-ready companies in the processed food, dairy and beverage sectors are encouraged to complete an expression of interest form by 15 December 2017.
