The French Trade Commission- UBIFRANCE in the United Arab Emirates organized "So French So Tasty" to promote France's food-and-drink sector and gastronomy. The exclusive dinner was held at the Pullman Deira City Centre, the 19th November 2012, in conjunction with the French pavilion at the Speciality Food Festival.
Besides, all the guests could taste French beef meat thanks to 3 French bovine meat producers attending the tradeshow, namely SVA Jean Rozé, Elivia and Deveille SAS.
According to Christelle Labernède, Head of the Agribusiness Department - Ubifrance UAE & Qatar, "Thanks to this VIP dinner, the French exhibitors at the Speciality Food Festival had also the opportunity to continue their discussions with local importers and chefs they met at the show, thanks to B2B meetings organized by our office. The U.A.E agrifood market is still growing and our food industry exports to the UAE are constantly rising year after year, and are now worth close to €215m (up 20% from 2010). The food service is crucial to French food exports. Since 2011, tourism in Dubai has been booming, with a hotel occupancy rate reaching new highs at 82% in 2011 against just 70% in 2010, and 2012 so far is looking even better."
