High turnover awaited at EXPO 2020 - Innovation Award honors trend products - Innovative online Matchmaking

The yummex Middle East (ME) is positioning itself: From 29 to 31 October 2019, the most important trade fair for sweets and snacks in the MENA region will present numerous new products, trends and innovations. The trade fair is being staged together with Gulfood Manufacturing, the largest trade fair for the processing and packing of food and beverages in the Near East, Asia and Africa, for the first time since 2016. Together yummex ME and Gulfood Manufacturing cover the entire value chain - from the suppliers, to the manufacturer, through to the trade. A further event will open up additional synergies and new business potential for the participants: PRIME, which is taking place for the first time, focuses on themes related to private label and licensing. At the 13th edition, yummex ME as the third largest trade fair for sweets and snacks in the world, is underlining its position as an established trend and innovation platform: Numerous group stands, including stands from Brazil, China, Germany, Greece & Cyprus, India, Italy, Jordan, Korea, Malaysia, Turkey, Ukraine and the USA & Mexico are taking part, which impressively accentuates the high level of internationality of the event. Famous companies such as Jelly Belly (USA), Saudi Ice Cream (Saudi Arabia), Trolli (Germany) and United Confectioners (Russia) will present their existing and new products. Furthermore, strong growth from the European market has been recorded on the exhibitor side, especially from Poland, Russia and the Ukraine. Exhibitors from Macedonia and Moldova are showing their ranges of products at the trade fair for the first time. Jan Philipp Hartmann, Director of yummex ME at Koelnmesse GmbH, also made reference to the good forecasts for the region: "Overall, high growth rates in the different sections of the sweets and snacks sector are indicated for the MENA region. Hence, yummex ME offers direct access to an attractive market with high turnover potential." The trade fair is organised jointly by the Dubai World Trade Centre and Koelnmesse GmbH.
