Gulfood is one of the world’s largest annual food and beverage (F&B) trade exhibitions. It’s a must-attend event for connecting with buyers and influencers from South Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe. 

NZTE is planning a wrap-around five-day programme for Gulfood 2020 (14-18 February 2020). Participants will be able to serve their products at industry-focused networking events, exhibit in New Zealand branded pavilions at Gulfood, attend educational workshops and tours, and network with other New Zealand and local businesses in the United Arab Emirates. 

Who is it for?

NZTE’s Gulfood programme is suitable for New Zealand businesses in the F&B sector who are established in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and have distribution networks already in place. 

It’s aimed at businesses promoting two broad product types: 

  • Dairy products  
  • All other food and beverage products. 


Participants will be required to pay a contribution towards the cost of this activity (to be advised), in addition to any travel and accommodation expenses.
