Eight notable Pakistani companies participated in March where as ten leading food companies exhibited in September. This shows the increasing interest and opportunities for the Pakistani exporters in Saudi market. These companies are among the top exporters from Pakistan dealing in groceries, processed food, ready to cook, beverages, bakery products and confectionaries.
Why Saudi for Food Exports?
Pak-Saudi Trade relations advance during Foodex Saudi. The Pakistani companies’ representatives while talking to media told that the increasing demand of the food items in the kingdom, offer huge opportunity to Pakistani companies to increase their space in Saudi market and enhance market share by aggressive marketing. Since Pakistan is an agricultural country, and more than 70 percent of its exports are agro and textile based, it has enormous potential to increase its exports share by tapping halal food market of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia currently imports more that 80 percent of its total food and beverages requirement.
