Flavie Paquay, UAE Director of Business France and Head of the Agritech Department, said, "Over the last several years, the UAE and GCC food sectors have grown increasingly self-sufficient. Governments undertake several initiatives to decrease food waste, fund research, and more! To achieve self-sufficiency, the GCC area nations have made substantial investments in improving local food production, distribution, and storage. The French firms participating in Gulfood Manufacturing are prepared to engage with the area to establish a robust food ecosystem due to their high-tech ideas, solutions, and goods of the highest quality."

France is an international power. Flavie Paquay noted that the high criteria established by the UAE for this edition of Gulfhost and Gulfood Manufacturing are an opportunity to showcase the finest of the French Food & Beverage Industry on the world scale.
A significant occasion for the UAE's food security plan
The United Arab Emirates produces 5.96 million tons of food and beverage goods yearly, with the ability to generate three times that much in a crisis. The newest innovations in sustainability, quality, and competitiveness will be the event's key focus for UAE professionals. Therefore, the agriculture sector's issues, notably food production and administration, need foreign supply and innovation. In addition to being an important market, the UAE is also a $7.5 billion re-exportation center for food and agricultural goods (2020).
