Dubai, October 11, 2010
Ten exhibitors from France will display a large selection of genuine high quality products from different regions of the country at an upcoming speciality food and sweets festival in Dubai.
The Gourmet - The Speciality Food Festival & Sweets Middle East 2010 will run from October 31 to November 2 at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The French companies will animate the 140 sq m of the French Food Pavilion, organised by Ubifrance, the French agency for international business development, with chocolates, candies, vanilla, prunes, biscuits, dips, truffles, caviar, oysters, salt and olive oil, among others, a statement said.
The French pavilion will not only showcase a profusion of products but will also offer to the visitors an opportunity to taste and enjoy the French products in many healthy and flavourful ways.
The exhibitors’ products will be used to cook both French and local recipes, demonstrating how they can be easily prepared and revealing how perfectly suited they are for international and oriental cuisine in the Chef’s corner, the statement said.
“We are very proud to introduce a variety of high-quality and tasty products at this new edition of Gourmet – The Speciality Food Festival & Sweets Middle East 2010,” said Christelle Labernède, manager agribusiness for the French Trade Commission – Ubifrance UAE.
“France, as the World’s no. 1 exporter of processed food products and Europe’s leading producer of farm and agri-food products, is targeting the Middle East Market as an opportunity for future growth,” she added. – TradeArabia News Service
