Busi­ness France, the na­tional agency sup­port­ing the in­ter­na­tional de­vel­op­ment of the French econ­omy, will be tak­ing cen­ter stage at GulfHost and the Spe­cialty Food Fes­ti­val with two large pavil­ions ex­hibit­ing prod­ucts of over 40 com­pa­nies. Top in­dus­trial cater­ing and hos­pi­tal­ity com­pa­nies from France will be show­cas­ing their pre­mium ranges of food ser­vice equip­ment and fine foods.

France is com­mit­ted to UAE’s in­dus­trial F&B sec­tor as it main­tains its sta­tus as sec­ond largest part­ner. With 85% of UAE’s food re­quire­ments im­ported, French ex­ports rep­re­sent around €400 mil­lion in sales an­nu­ally. France’s lead­ing ex­ports in­clude mainly bev­er­ages (30%), dairy prod­ucts (16%) and fruits (9%).

Marc Cag­nard, manag­ing di­rec­tor, Busi­ness France Mid­dle East com­mented: “France is fully com­mit­ted to the suc­cess of the 2018 edi­tion and is plan­ning for a larger con­tri­bu­tion at the next GulfHost which will take place in 2020, dur­ing the World Expo”.

The French Pavil­ion at GulfHost will gather com­pa­nies which will show­case the lat­est in­no­va­tion of in­dus­trial kitchen equip­ment, cook­ing uten­sils and ranges of tools cre­ated for culi­nary pro­fes­sion­als. The French syn­di­cate of the food process equip­ment mak­ers (SYNEG) will again this year be one of the main part­ners sup­port­ing the ini­tia­tive.
