"We have seen great interest from a number of distributers, restaurants, shops and other food outlets who are keen to learn more about our age-old traditions and our expertise in producing all-natural products in a sustainable manner. Undoubtedly, SIAL Middle East has given us a fantastic opportunity to showcase our products and begin making connections in the Gulf region. We see great potential in the Middle East markets and we are extremely excited and honoured to be part of this exhibition.” Nathan Notah, American Indian Foods, USA
"We are launching our products into the Middle East market, so we have been attending SIAL ME for the past three years as a visitor to observe what happens at SIAL. This year, we decided to participate as exhibitors, as our runway to the GCC countries. I recommend it to both visitors who can select their suppliers, and exhibitors who can connect with top buyers in this region and Asia and Oceanic. Regarding the organising capabilities of SIAL, I must say
they show strong international network professionalism compared to many other Agri events." Girish Kumar, CEO, Choice Global FZE, UAE
