A host of Brazilian businesses set for this year’s Yummex Middle East
A diverse range of Brazilian businesses are set to appear at this year’s Yummex Middle East international confectionery fair taking place 29-31 October in Dubai.
The delegation presents its varied portfolio at the fair, with releases in candies, caramels, chocolates and spreads – all with innovative flavours and formats, inspired by a wealth of South American tradition, which is reflected in the array of colourful packaging designs.
For this year’s event Brasil Pavilion at Yummex is organized by the Brasil Sweets and Snacks project, a partnership between ABICAB (Brazilian Chocolates, Peanuts and Candies Manufacturers Association), and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil). The companies present within the delegation include Cory, Docile, Embare, Hershey, Neugebauer, Nucita, Pecci, Riclan and Simas.
The product portfolio at the Brasil Pavilion in Dubai confirms the tradition of the country, which ranks 8th among the largest confectionery markets in the world and an expanding industry, with increasing exports since 2016. The expansion is the result of heavy investments in innovation, capacity increase and improvement of production processes made by Brazilian industries.
“The Brazilian confectionery industry has been present in the international market since the 70’s and our products are currently sold to 167 countries. This privileged position has been built by investing in quality and offering products that follow international trends”, says Ubiracy Fonseca (pictured at ISM), president of ABICAB.
