Leading the Future of Food Production - DUBAI

The food manufacturing industry has experienced profound disruption throughout the supply chain in the past year, requiring companies to reconfigure their equipment. With the food processing and handling equipment market forecast to rise from $102,78 billion in 2021 to $138.41 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 4.3%, there's never been a better time to be part of the largest annual event for F&B processing, ingredient & packaging that addresses all aspects of the food manufacturing process and its significant source of impetus for international F&B manufacturers.

Food Processing Machinery Market in the Middle East and Africa was worth USD 5.18 billion in 2021, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% by 2026.
