Gulfood Green is our new global sustainability initiative, to nurture and use our platform to ignite and continue conversations within the wider community, to create a momentous shift towards more resilient and sustainable food production and consumption.


Our objective is to raise visibility and influence key strategic food industry champions for sustainable food systems transformation in the lead up to COP28 and set a precedent for the future.


There is really no other industry where you can have a greater impact.


Join Us! As we move from agenda to action with Gulfood Green, and continue to look at practical ways to reduce food waste and to eat sustainably - for the protection of our planet.

As part of the Gulfood Green Initiative, we are proud to announce our own Gulfood Forest, a global tree-planting campaign and nature-based solution to Gulfood’s sustainability commitments. Our goal is to conserve, restore and grow trees across the globe to help curb climate change. The food industry is known to be a major carbon emitter and the Gulfood Forest will help us restore global forests.


The first four locations span the globe and include the UAE, Uganda, Ecuador and Indonesia. Fruit bearing trees will be planted in a number of the locations to enable families and local communities to become self-sufficient.


Plant trees now and contribute to the Gulfood Forest for a greener and better tomorrow!
