This year, for the first time in history, Slovak food and beverage producers presented their products at GULFOOD DUBAI, the world’s largest annual food, beverage, and hospitality exhibition where more than 5,000 companies from 120 countries around the world showcase their products. The national exposition was organised by the Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) and the Agriculture Ministry. Nine food producers from Slovakia presented their products directly at the exhibition, while a further 18 businesses were on a business mission in Dubai.

“Although Slovakia cannot compete with the amount of production, it definitely can compete with the quality of foodstuffs,” said Agriculture and Rural Development Minister Gabriela Matečná (SNS) as cited by the SITA newswire. “If our food producers want to be successful, it cannot be done without marketing and presentation.”

Matečná also held talks with Mansour bin Zayed bin Sultan bin Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, minister of presidential affairs and member of the ruling family of Abu Dhabi. Their talks revolved around the topics of investments and research in food security, water quality and energy, as well as cooperation over horse breeding, equitation and falconry.
