Several Aussie food companies are among those exhibiting their brands at the food and beverage trade show Gulfood 2019 in Dubai.

The annual show, which takes place from 17 to 21 February, draws 98,000 attendees and 5000 exhibitors across eight primary market sectors.

Fifteen Australian businesses are among the exhibitors on a united Australian stand organised by Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL): Canon Foods; Australian Natural Biotech Honey; Brookfarm; Byron Bay Cookie Co; Morlife; Bubs Australia; Sol Organics; My Provincial Kitchen; Baxter’s Foods; Geraldton Fisherman’s Coop; Brolos; Sal Dolce; Della Rosa; and Australian Food and Pharmaceuticals.

“With the growing consuming classes around the world, Australia is well positioned to benefit from the thriving export opportunities globally,” FIAL managing director Mirjana Prica said.

“There is a strong demand for Australia’s premium food that has the reputation for being differentiated and of high quality. Gulfood is a great opportunity for Australian food and agribusinesses who are looking to dip their toe into the waters of export to grow their business.”
