As of this week, Ukraine has made a successful start within one of the global biggest foods’ exhibition GULFOOD 2019 (Dubai), Ukrinform says referring to the Kyiv Chamber of Commerce and Industry report.
As to the report, GULFOOD 2019 was attended by Acting Minister of Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Olga Trofimtseva, and the Ambassador of Ukraine to the Arab Emirates Yuriy Polurez. It is to be admitted, the Ukrainian stand opening was attended by supermarkets/hypermarkets’ owners and employees, importers, exporters, products/beverages’ traders, restaurateurs (incl. fast food restaurants) from many countries. Altogether, since the exhibition beginning, thousands of visitors have already shown a great interest towards the Ukrainian products.
It is to be admitted, within a few recent years, the number of the Ukrainian companies participating GULFOOD has much grown; thus, as of last year, their number was 34, while this year over 60. That means the Ukrainian producers are gradually becoming still more interested within their business development on the Middle East market.
It is to be noted, half of all the Ukrainian participating companies are taking part in GULFOOD for the first time. There is no doubt the Ukrainian producers are becoming still more and more aware of the importance of their participation within such events.
