UAE Food and Drink Distributor Interview

The UAE is an attractive export market for food, drink and supplement brands and offers an untapped business growth potential for many aspiring or developing exporters. Consumers are very diverse due to the population composition and the high global tourism. Moreover, they have an appetite for quality and differentiated products. It is often seen as a good starting point for entry into the wider Gulf region.
