DAFZ organises promotional event for investors, entrepreneurs and business leaders across F&B sector

DUBAI, The Dubai Airport Free Zone (DAFZ) concluded its participation in Gulfood 2022, the world’s largest F&B sourcing event, held at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) between 13th-17th February. The free zone successfully highlighted the vibrant business environment and investment opportunities it offers to regional and global food companies.

During the exhibition, DAFZ organised a promotional event that brought together representatives from the free zone with investors, entrepreneurs and owners of F&B companies. The attendees were briefed on DAFZ’s portfolio of offers, services, tax and investment incentives, and business support it provides to investors. The event provided a number of opportunities for side meetings and networking to explore future opportunities with potential partners.

Abdulaziz Alhammadi, SVP – Marketing & Business Growth at DAFZ, confirmed that regional and global F&B companies are aspiring to transfer their operations to the emirate of Dubai. This is due to its strategic location at the heart of global trade, as well as its perennial quest to accelerate and enhance the efficiency of supply chains by making these companies and their production processes closer to distributors across various markets.

Al Hammadi also noted that the high turnout for Gulfood 2022 reflects the increasing interest of international companies in Dubai.

DAFZ is now home to more than 2200 registered international and multinational businesses and small and medium enterprises, with F&B companies comprising 7% of the total number of companies in the free zone.
