Pakistan is showcasing a diverse range of food products at the event such as rice, confectionery, beverages, poultry, and spices.
The Country’s participation in Gulfood provides an opportunity for Pakistani exhibitors to explore new buyers for a wide range of food and agro sector products including fresh and frozen foods, fruits and vegetables, sauces, nuts, sweets, confectionery, and tea.
