“Our range of business friendly services and facilities provides gives companies the ability to leverage the potential Dubai offers the industry by allowing them to focus on their operations and the opportunities the regional market presents.

“Continued F&B growth also underlines our commitment to the government’s goals for economic diversification. By creating a world class business environment, we are encouraging manufacturers to establish themselves here and develop new products and commodities that meet consumer demand.  Given the dynamic nature of the industry, we will continue to assess market conditions and position ourselves to meet customer requirements.”

Of the F&B companies based in Jafza, 37% are from the Middle East; 24 percent from Asia-Pacific; 19 percent from Europe; 10 percent from the Americas and 10 percent from Africa.
