Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (Rakez) is showing global investors complete business solutions for establishing and growing their presence in the UAE's flourishing food and beverage industry at Gulfood.

The country’s F&B sector is experiencing a significant boom, driven by growing expat population, high disposable incomes, diverse cultural tastes, and a robust GDP. A Statista report highlights the industry’s bright future, projecting that per capita spending in the UAE’s F&B sector will reach approximately AED14,000 ($3,812) by 2025. This optimistic outlook positions the UAE as a fertile ground for F&B businesses seeking growth and innovation.

Rakez Group CEO, Ramy Jallad, said: “A new global chapter is unfolding in the future of food with great technological advancements being unveiled at Gulfood from February 19 to 23.
