They returned. Last 2021 Gulfood opened its doors welcoming food companies from all over the world. This event welcomes companies dedicated to the supply of food and non-alcoholic beverages. At the Dubai headquarters of this fair, international companies related to the hospitality, refrigeration, gastronomic, beverage, food and nutrition sectors present all their new products (fresh and frozen fish and seafood are excluded).
This year they meet again from February 13 to 17 in the 21 rooms of the Dubai World Trade Center.
This is one of the most important events of the year held in the Middle East for different food professionals. There they seek to learn about the latest products, evaluate the various market developments and connect with global suppliers. A showcase that encourages exploring new markets.
New for 2022, Gulfood aims to take the culinary experience to a new level, featuring a host of award-winning chefs, food journalists and global trendsetters. In addition, there will be numerous workshops such as the art of fine butchery or exquisite tea, among others.
This fair will also host a sustainable campaign: Gulfood Zero Waste. With it they intend to create an edition full of foods and drinks that promote the zero waste initiative. “An inspiration not only for business people but also for those who love food.”
Likewise, the event will provide a culinary diversity of the region, in which local chefs will present their best street food creations, from traditional to contemporary.
