Gulfood 2016, a major food and hospitality trade event in the region, kicked off at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) on Sunday.

The show, which will run until Thursday, was opened By Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance and Industry.

Gulfood features more than 5,000 companies and 117 pavilions, and is expected to draw more than 85,000 visitors from more than 170 countries, including international heads of state, ministers, government officials and national trade associations.

"The show facilitates multimillion dollar transactions as the global food industry meets, networks, sources new products and trades out of Dubai,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President at DWTC, the organiser of Gulfood, in a statement.

Exhibitors at Gulfood said that they are looking for business opportunities in the region.

"We're always open to new people that want to see us. And most years we pick up one or two new guys around the region,” said Darren Verrall, Group General Manager of Australian Lamb Company.

Thomas Paterson, Chief Executive of Scorpio Foods, said that he wants to "do a lot more business” in the region.

"Every time I come here I learn something new and go home and try and make products to suit the market,” he said.

The show spans in excess of 1.29 million square feet of exhibition space. – Gulf News -
