The Middle East Organic and Natural Products Expo will return to Dubai World Trade Centre with its 16th edition this November. This highly anticipated trade show is the only one of its kind in the region that brings together the global supply chain of healthy and unadulterated produce, products and raw materials.
The growing consumer awareness of the advantages of natural and organic products and services in the MENA region has helped it mushroom into a US$ 1.5 billion market. With this said, it has strategically positioned the Middle East Organic and Natural Products Expo Dubai as the ideal platform to conduct business, launch new products and make regional and international alliances.
In the 2017 edition, nearly 6,000 trade visitors from across 42 countries explored over 2000 products across the nine country pavilions. This lead to a record number of successful business transactions, totalling an impressive US$ 173 million over three days. In addition, over 15 knowledge sessions were held by industry experts on topics ranging from ‘How to set up organic farms in the UAE’ to the ‘Global policy toolkit on public support for organic culture.’
2018 is expected to be another exciting year with a great majority of the exhibitors in the Food and Beverage, Environment, Lifestyle, Beauty and Healthcare sectors having re-booked in advance.
