Spanish companies are gearing up for Gulfood 2022 in Dubai scheduled for February 13th to the 17th. ICEX participates in the 2022 edition of the Gulfood fair with an Official Pavilion composed of 121 companies that are distributed in halls, depending on their activity: Dairy (8), Fats and Oils (16), Beverage (11), Meat and Poultry (6) and World Food (80). The space will have a permanent tasting area where the products of the exhibiting companies will be displayed, including a container and a technical sheet of each product.
As for the drinks pavilion, 11 Spanish exhibitors will be present. This is a productive area with high potential in the region, so it is necessary to boost the Spanish pavilion with a promotional space, in line with the trend perceived in recent editions in which the pavilions of different European countries incorporated tasting areas similar to this one.
