At the same time, the exhibition also provides a platform for food industry manufacturers, distributors and suppliers from all over the world to display the latest exhibits and seek business opportunities. At present, the Middle East has become one of the regions with the fastest growing demand for organic food, especially Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. The demand continues to be strong. Organic food is becoming one of the main foods exported by developing countries to other countries. Although the Middle East has just begun to recognize organic food, its market growth rate will be very alarming. Rising income levels, increased concern about food, health and safety issues, and familiarity with organic food production will be major factors for the growth of organic food in the Gulf region.

        According to the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, the total retail sales of the fresh and packaged food industry in the UAE reached US$16.4 billion last year, and consumer spending on food purchases through e-commerce platforms will reach US$1.1 billion in 2023, and is expected to achieve a 9.5% growth rate from 2023 to 2027.
