Welsh companies to attend world’s largest food and drink trade event in Dubai in a bid to secure new international trade links
Gulfood is recognised as one of the world’s largest food trade events that Wales has a long association with, which has helped to bring an array of Welsh produce to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region.
The latest industry figures reveal a record-breaking turnover of £7.473 billion in 2019, surpassing the ambitious target set in 2014 to achieve 30% growth and reach £7billion of sales by 2020. In 2018, 73% of all Welsh food & drink exports went to the European Union.
Leaders in the Welsh food and drink industry are urging small businesses to prepare for the impact of Brexit following the result of the UK General Election.
