calendar 11/13/2015 12:00 PM


Organized by "SAUDI EXPORTS" in InterFood SIAL 2015 Exhibition

The Saudi Stand, organized by the Saudi Exports Development Authority "SAUDI EXPORTS" was the focus of attention by visitors at the international food exhibition "InterFood SIAL 2015" which was held in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, for 4 days. Attention of investors in the food sector in East Asia and the world was focused during the exhibition at 28 local factories that were represented at the Saudi Pavilion under the umbrella of the "SAUDI EXPORTS". These factories were able to highlight the potential productivity of national food commodities to the Asian markets and benefit from the promising opportunities to expand the market share of domestic exporters in the global markets. Among the main reasons which brought the visitors to the Saudi Pavilion were the qualities of Saudi products "Halal", the ongoing development of the product and marketing capabilities, which the "SAUDI EXPORTS" helped to create. This will enable Saudi exporters to build a long-term relationship with importers in Asia and the world.

It is worth noting that the food industry is one of the most important local productive sectors. The volume of food exports has been growing over the past five years to more than 3 billion riyals. Figures from the General Authority for Statistics indicate an increase from 10 billion riyals in 2009, to 13 billion riyals in 2014.

 It is also worth mentioning that the exhibition attracts major competent international companies in food products, and nearly 1,000 exhibitors from 35 countries take part in this exhibition. It also attracts more than 50,000 visitors. Saudi Exports aims to market Saudi food products Indonesia, because of the population density and high demand for the Saudi products which meet the best international standards. The Saudi products are also characterized by high quality and affordable prices. In addition, Indonesia is an important commercial gateway to the Asian markets in general.

The Authority hopes that its efforts and activities will be an added value to the Saudi manufacturers in a way that will positively impact the national economy in general and growth of national companies in particular through stimulating these companies and enabling them to develop their business in international markets and making use of the available opportunities. It intends to do so through training workshops offered throughout the whole year, or through participation in specialized international fairs organized by the "SAUDI EXPORTS" in many sectors, in addition to bilateral meetings and forums.
