Astrea Mideast DMCC has been showing for the last three years Italian companies with the SVA Group support.

In fact, Italian food has rarely been as popular as today in the United Arab Emirates. The most recent data show exports to the region are rising double-digit, and the numerous high-end Italian restaurants in Dubai offer fresh produce for one thousand and one night dinners.

Appetite for Italian food is confirmed by growing demand. Exports to UAE of Italian agro-food and beverage products in 2015 increased strongly from 2014, when they rose 5.3% to €252.5 million in value. In the first eight months of 2015, exports were up 38.4% at €198.2 million, according to ISTAT data elaborated by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA-ICE agency), which has an office in Dubai. This was the highest level since 2012, when exports grew 47.5%.
