The United Arab Emirates is a prosperous country in the Middle East with an economy that continues to benefit from population growth, rising incomes and ongoing tourism. Food and beverage sales are the country’s second largest industry, yet over 70% of all food requirements are met by imports. The UAE is also a major re-exporting hub, and a significant link in the region’s food chain.  

Market growth and trends 
The UAE has seen increasing demand for healthier food and beverage options, including organics and products free from additives. Alongside high consumption of milk and dairy products, there is a growing market for plant-based products and dairy alternatives. Demand for soft drinks and flavoured water is also projected to rise.  

A regional launchpad 
Thanks to a stable economy and political environment, the UAE is among the Middle East’s most preferred locations for investors. Book a one-on-one consultation with S-GE’s UAE expert to gain tailored insights into the local industry and discover how your Swiss F&B company can export successfully to this market.
