DUBAI, August 22, 2017

Business France, the national agency for the global development of the French economy will host two French pavilions at Gulfhost and the Speciality Food Festival, the two trade fairs running from September 18 to 20 in Dubai, UAE.

It will be the location to enjoy and relish the display of generous and refined French gourmet sweets.  Local consumption of French confectionery, from jam, ‘dragées’ to chocolate truffle, has been increasing lately, making it a strong point of attraction at the festival.

Other food industries shall be present at the Festival, ranging from dairy products, to beverages and specific industries (e.g. oyster production).  Visitors can then discover specific and diverse French products.
