Gulfoods 2017 - Meeting Old Friends and Making New

Gulfoods is the largest food industry exposition in the region.  When we say region, this includes all of the countries around Dubai including Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and even Iran.  Many of the visitors are from India which is close and dominant in trade with the region.    Some of our best new blueberry friends stopped in to visit and are very proud of their blueberry products!

No visit to Guylfood would be complete without a visit from Gunjan Jain of VK nuts.  Gunjan is a fourth generation dried fruit and nut grower, processor and seller from Jammu Kashmire.  He was an early importer of dried fruits and proudly displays his new Diwali Pack for the wonderful Indian holiday. 

Here is the crew from Green Tea, one of the other major Indian packs which are sold throughout India and now in the Gulf.  They have continually evolved their pack and are now becoming major players in South India.

Here is a wonderful bakery filling produced in India and marketed around the Gulf.  Malas received blueberry samples and technical assistance from USHBC to develop this product and it is selling well.  Malas has a booth at the Gulfoods in the India pavilion and generated a lot of interest!
