EU highlights quality, safety and authenticity of agricultural food and beverage products at Gulfood 2019

 700x9999.5D R9147The European Union (EU), exporter and importer of agricultural food and beverage products, is present at Gulfood with its own pavilion, to demonstrate the safety, quality and authenticity of EU agricultural food and beverage products

The pavilion aims to facilitate European agricultural food and drink exports to the UAE, while building on the existing presence and strong bonds of European agri-food producers with and beyond the UAE market.

EU Commissioner Phil Hogan said, “Gulfood is the largest annual food and beverage trade fair in the world. It is only natural that the EU is visible here, thanks to the presence of its member states and the EU pavilion. This event is a great opportunity for business people not only from the United Arab Emirates but from all over the world to learn more about EU’s excellence in producing authentic, safe food, to the highest quality standards.”

The pavilion will be an immersive experience in which visitors can taste, smell and see a wide range of agricultural products from all EU member states. Cooking shows, tasting sessions and master classes will be hosted by two renowned chefs, Charles Soussin from France and Mona Mosly from Saudi Arabia.

The United Arab Emirates is the EU’s 13th largest export market for agricultural food and beverage products. As a net food importer and an entry point to other Gulf countries, as well as to the Middle East and North African markets, the UAE offers European producers many opportunities.

The growing and diversified population of the UAE is interested in safe and healthy food exported by the EU. European products have been recognised for their diversity, safety, quality and authenticity, ensuring an appealing culinary experience.
