In a statement released on Tuesday, Khudari said that many of the participating Jordanian companies, of which there are 18, have been able to enter new export markets through commercial partnerships and contracts signed with suppliers because of the event.

He added that expensive shipping rates from China has led to an increase in demand for Jordanian industrial products, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra. 

The Jordanian industrial companies participating in the exhibition work in the sectors of packaging, machinery, raw materials, industrial additives, sweets, dates, nuts, coffee, chocolate, snacks, and Dead Sea products, in addition to other sectors.

The opening of the pavilion was attended by the consul general of the Kingdom in Dubai, Assem Ababneh; the economic advisor at the Jordanian Embassy in the UAE, Nader Al-Suhaim; the president of the Jordan Chamber of Industry, Fathi Al-Jaghbir; his deputy, Mohammad Jitan; and the representative of the foodstuff sector at the Jordan Chamber of Commerce, Raed Hamadeh.

Gulfood Manufacturing is being held at the Dubai World Trade Center with the participation of 55 countries, and it is the largest of its kind in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia for the food and beverage industry, processing, packaging, and logistics.

In addition, Jordanian manufacturers participating in the exhibition have said that the event is an important trading platform that enables them to identify and network with a number of traders in different countries of the world interested in Jordanian products.

The owner of one of the companies, Hisham Al-Qaisi, said that participation in the exhibition, specifically in the private trademarks and licenses section, aims to promote Jordanian products and meet with agents and distributors from around the world as part of the company’s plans to expand.
