The trade mission is a partnership between Grovara and DGC, a permanent wholesale market that facilitates business between international buyers and sellers and is a key pillar of Dubai’s efforts to return to its roots as a regional and global trading hub.
Grovara Food Week will include panel discussions led by Grovara executives, partners, and industry experts focused on establishing an overseas sales channel. It is the first event of its kind in Dubai to combine digital and physical global commerce and highlights the integration of Grovara’s first-to-market digital global trading Platform with DGC’s one-of-a-kind physical marketplace.
“We have assembled an amazing lineup of brands looking to make their mark in this incredible city,” says Grovara VP of Brand Management and Operations Kerri McLaughlin. “They are the reason we are changing global wholesale, and we’re bringing them a rare opportunity to unlock a new market, make new connections, and learn from industry experts.”
All brands participating in Grovara Food Week are available on the Grovara Marketplace and represent a diverse product mix that is export-ready, from established category leaders to some of the most innovative better-for-you brands on the market, including:
- Before the Butcher
- Yumma Avocado
- I Amaranth
- Rise Brewing
- Datiles del Desierto
“I’m excited and grateful for the opportunity to further expand the Before the Butcher brand globally,” says Danny O’Malley, CEO of plant-based protein maker Before the Butcher. “With the plant-based foods market expected to hit $162 billion in the next decade, I believe global events like Grovara Food Week in Dubai are important for brands like ours to be recognized in international markets and be part of this explosive growth.”
Brands will learn about Dubai’s role in regional and global food trade and the keys for doing business in the Middle East and Africa. There will also be networking sessions and one-on-one meetings with retailers, distributors, Grovara’s leadership team, and global CPG leaders.
“We fully rely on Grovara for our commercial operations in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia,” says Jesus S Nunez, Founder of 4 Buddies maker Miraestels Foods. “Their team’s professionalism and knowledge have made our dreams of going global a reality.”
