The MEASA region – a global business hub for companies offering solutions to the food & beverage sector
The Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region is the world’s fastest growing F&B processing territory where demand for
output solutions is accelerating. Demand for food processing machinery in the region will reach US$ 1.45 billion in the next two
years as buyers in this market seek innovation, efficiency, improved output and production flexibility.
Gulfood Manufacturing – the core of trading within the F&B processing industry
Gulfood Manufacturing is the largest trade show for the food processing and manufacturing sector in the MEASA region. Launched
in 2014 and already endorsed by 1,600 international suppliers from over 60 countries, it recognises the region’s ripe business
potential as a leading international manufacturing and processing hub to serve domestic and international demand.
The show connects global suppliers of the latest ingredients, processing, packaging, automation and logistics solutions to global
food & beverage manufacturers who come to the show to source latest manufacturing ingredients and machinery. Last year,
32,499 food and beverage manufacturers from all over the world attended Gulfood Manufacturing with international visitor
attendance rising 26% over and above its previous 2016 edition. The show also secured a 97% importance ranking by attendees to
their overall business.
Unlocking complete integrated end-to- end solutions for the entire F&B processing value chain
The upcoming 2017 edition of the show will unveil a much wider exhibition profile, showcasing solutions for the complete
spectrum of food & beverage manufacturing, starting from the initial formulation of ingredients, to processing, packaging and
automation, all the way through to supply chain and logistics when finished products reach end-consumers.
