Gulfood is the largest annual food and beverage sourcing event in the world with the participation of over 120 countries and more than 4,000 exhibitors with the theme to connect, create and change the future for the better.

The Group looks forward to meeting industry specialists and exploring new business partnerships to achieve exponential growth in the UAE and other parts of the Gulf region. Starting from today, the event will run for five day until February 17 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).

Al Maya Group’s logistics and warehousing facility is fully operational, empowered with a German warehouse management system.
