9 Pakistani companies participating in Foodex Saudi 2018 exhibition

Nine Pakistani exporting companies were participating in the Foodex Saudi 2018 exhibition being held in Jeddah on November 12-15.

According to the Pakistan Consulate General in Jeddah, the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP), in collaboration with the Commercial Section of the Consulate General, had selected nine well-established companies to offer their range of quality products for the Saudi market.

Commercial Counselor Shahzad Ahmad Khan said that promoting the bilateral Pakistani-Saudi trade is among the foremost responsibilities of Pakistan Consulate. He said that Saudi Arabia imports more than $25 billion worth of food and beverage products each year to meet its growing consumption demands due to growing population and increasing annual pilgrimage.

These developments, the commercial counselor said, offered a huge opportunity to Pakistani companies to further penetrate the Saudi market and increase their market share.

This was the sixth edition of Foodex Saudi Exhibition Jeddah organized by Reed Sunaidi Company at Jeddah Center for Events & Forums.
