Gulfood 2022: One week to go before the regions’ largest F&B event
The 27th edition of Gulfood kicks off this Sunday, February 13, less than a week away. The world’s largest annual F&B sourcing event is taking place over five days until February 17, 2022.
This year visitors can expect a brand new programme roster. It features Gulfood Zero Waste, which will shed light on major global food issues; Gulfood Top Table, an initiative highlighting culinary experiences with a live line-up of chefs and food influencers; Gulfood e-commerce platform, a networking and conference agenda; Gulfood YouthX, a platform to empower the most promising aspiring chefs; Gulfood Inspire, which sees a host of speakers take to the stage and the Global Changemakers a future-focused start-up programme.
The event, which will span 21 Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) halls, will underscore the UAE’s status at the forefront of sector change and leading role in tackling global issues.
The 2022 edition is also poised to act as a springboard for some of the latest innovations in sustainable packaging and carbon zero food products.
Major global challenges, trends and change drivers will be examined, including e-commerce, technology, sustainability and disruptive cellular agriculture bio-innovation (the production of animal-sourced foods from cell culture methods) and emerging slow and plant-based food trends.
Driving creativity and change, this year’s edition will shape the future of food. In another industry first, this year’s event will feature an e-commerce platform, an exclusive networking and conference agenda powering the increasingly growing role of the digital marketplace in the food supply chain.
