The Resource Group of Companies’ Delegation Visited Gulfood 2021
From 21 to 25 February, the 26th Gulfood International Exhibition was held at the World Trade Center in Dubai, which became the first offline event of this scale since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Due to restrictions, about 2.5 thousand companies from 85 countries took part in the largest event in the food industry, for comparison – last year the number of exhibitors exceeded 5 thousand.
Safety considerations also influenced the format of participation in the exhibition of the Resource Group of Companies. During the previous five years the Company presented its products at the individual corporate stand, this year it was decided to visit the forum with a limited number of delegates.
During the visit, the representatives of the Company, among other things, visited the Russian national exposition and took part in the events of the business program of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation: a round table with heads of domestic companies, a meeting of the Russian-Emirates Business Council on food issues and others. The managers of the Resource Group also held a number of business meetings with current and potential trading partners (Americana Group, Al Maya Group, LuLu Hypermarket UAE).
Taking into account the fact that the Resource Group has been selling poultry products in the markets of the Middle East for a long time and has formed a pool of loyal customers, special attention was paid to negotiations on the export of sunflower oil. The agreements reached with one of the largest importers and processors in GCC – IFFCO, and other potential buyers testify to the great interest in this type of product and confirm the prospects for this direction of business development.
