A South Cumbrian pharmaceutical manufacturing company has accepted the chance to accompany The Department For International Trade to the world’s largest annual food event.
Kendal Nutricare will be joining as one of the 5,000 exhibitors attending Gulfood, 2018 in Dubai this month.
The Dubai World Trade Centre is the venue which during last year’s exhibition welcomed in excess of 97,000 visitors across a 1 million square feet exhibition space, where everything from meat and poultry to iced teas and sports drinks, celebrity chefs and food companies big and small will be on show.
It total 185 countries will be attending carrying a range of new, authentic, niche and natural products and Kendal Nutricare will be in the middle of it flying the flag for Cumbria.
CEO Ross McMahon promises to bring the best of Cumbria to the exhibition. He said: “We believe local providence is becoming an increasing area of interest to consumers who can see first-hand how we differ from big multinationals.
"Consumers want authentic, niche and natural products. Kendal Nutricare manufactures all of its products here in Great Britain.”
