Australian food and beverage products will be on the dinner tables of families across the UAE after the New South Wales (NSW) Government, Australia, assisted Australian supermarket Woolworths in securing an export partnership with the Al Maya Group.
Australian Ambassador to the UAE, HE Arthur Spyrou, said Woolworths is launching ninety products – including sauces, condiments, biscuits, confectionery, canned fruit and juices – into the UAE, most produced by Australian manufacturers under the Woolworths brand.
“This news will see world class Australian food and beverage products being sold in up to eight Al Maya supermarkets across Abu Dhabi and Dubai,” Mr Spyrou said.
“The NSW Government introduced Woolworths to the Al Maya Group during a trade mission we led to the UAE in 2018 for the world’s largest annual food and beverage trade exhibition, Gulfood, in Dubai,” said Mr Moin Anwar, Commissioner (Middle East), NSW Government.
The UAE is one of the Middle East’s fastest growing markets with over nine million people and having one of the world’s highest per capita GDPs.
