Aceitunas Torrent started the 2019 trade fair calendar at Gulfood (Dubai), the world’s largest annual food & beverages trade show. We have been attending this fair every year for over a decade, but this year exceeded all our expectations! The Aceitunas Torrent’s stand was extremely popular and was visited by customers, distributors and curious passers-by throughout the five-day fair.
Customers and distributors were not only attracted to our stand by our products, but also by the exhibition stand itself. We wanted to take a slice of Cordoba with us to Dubai, and we managed it with an impressive eight-metre photo of our olive groves at the Patamulo and Trueno estates, a privileged location in the heart of the southern Cordoba countryside, the cradle of the Hojiblanca variety.
Visitors to the Spanish pavilion did not miss out on the chance to take photos in front of the beautiful image. Aceitunas Torrent wanted to pay tribute to the passion of four generations of olive farmers. It is this passion that has allowed us to produce such high-quality olives and to export them to more than 70 countries.
The Middle East is a key destination for Torrent’s products and Ragab Saad is our export manager for the region and one of the four-person team that travelled to Gulfood. Saad points out that, although Aceitunas Torrent is a leader in these markets, there are still many opportunities and challenges for the company. “We are proud to say that the recognition of our brands has increased considerably in recent years and we are committed to meeting the demanding expectations of our customers”.
Aceitunas Torrent: from Córdoba to Gulfood
Under the motto ‘The World of Food. The World of Good’ the 24th edition of the Gulfood trade show took place from Feb 17-21 2019, and was the most successful edition of the fair to date, with a greater number of participants than ever before.
More than 95,000 professionals from all over the world visited the World Trade Center in Dubai to learn about the latest developments and products in the food and beverage sector. 5,000 exhibitors were present covering an area of 900,000 square meters.
We look forward to seeing you again next year. If you can’t wait until next year, you can also find us at PLMA (Amsterdam) on May 21-22, 2019.
