Dubai Food and Beverage Industry Reveals an Appetite for Growth

Published: 13 Feb 2018

Dubai has a vibrant dining and hospitality culture with restaurants popping up in almost every corner, yet most of the food served in these restaurants is imported. Food and beverage (F&B) products form a large chunk of imports as there is very little arable land in the Emirate to support domestic demand. Dubai imports almost 80-85% of its F&B products from around the world.

The F&B sector is turning out to be significant as the Dubai Government plans to enhance its exports and reduce its import dependency. Farm suppliers, farms, F&B processors, logistics, and retail outlets for food form the value chain. Frost & Sullivan predicts the emergence and explosive growth of the Halal food industry as a Mega Trend.
