Fact-Finding Mission

Fact Finding Mission to Qatar

Business trip for Swiss food producers

Use this opportunity to get to know Qatar's Food Distributors!

Datteln aus Katar

Several countries in the Arab region have decided to break off their contact with Qatar. These measures have led to supply shortfall in the food sector in Qatar, which have been covered by imports from Turkey, Iran and other countries.

Our discussions with leading food distributors in Qatar have shown,that customers are not satisfied with the current situation and that the demand for high-quality products from Switzerland is growing.

The following sectors are particularly popular in Qatar:

  • Dairy (milk & yoghurt)
  • confectionary (jams, honey, chocolate, biscuits)
  • Baby food & milk
  • Grocery (Cereals & Müesli)
  • Water (in glass bottles)
  • Organic Food
  • canned food
  • Pasta
  • Frozen vegetables
  • Frozen pastries

We would like to take this opportunity to bring Swiss food poducers and Qatar distributors into contact with each other and for this reason we cordially invite you to our business trip to Qatar.

You benefit:

  • During 2 days you will meet 4 - 6 of the leading Qatari food distributors and have the opportunity to present your products in a short "sales pitch".
  • You'll meet F&B managers from Carrefour, Monoprix and Al Meera.
  • Switzerland Global Enterprise together with the Swiss Business Hub Middle East will organize for you all meetings
