Poland looks to tap GCC through Dubai for apple exports
UAE known for importing top quality food from across the globe
Poland expects trade with the UAE will increase as it look to tap the GCC apple markets through Dubai, said Karolina Kaminska, project manager at the Association of Polish Distributors of Fruits and Vegetables.
"Poland exports about 400 containers of apples to Dubai every year. We are focused on the UAE market now but there are good opportunities to expand to other Gulf countries as well. The UAE is an open gate for trade with regional countries. Exports of apple from Poland to Dubai will go up because quality of our apple is improving with every passing year," Kaminska said on the sidelines of Gulfood 2021, where the association is participating under the umbrella of the European Union.
She said the UAE is known for importing top quality food from across the globe and it is a big challenge which Polish and Europeans apple exporters try to maintain as well.
"We started exploring the UAE market from 2014 and this is our second promotional campaign here. Distributors from the UAE want to buy popular variety of like Gala Golden and Red Apple. We know this market very well now and have a lot of distributors from here who import apple from Poland and Europe," she said on the sidelines of Gulfood.
Kaminska said the food and beverage exhibition is an important event not just in the Gulf but worldwide and the response so far has been good because a lot of people were interested in importing apples from Poland and Europe. "We are expecting good contracts here from here."
