The South Korean Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (MAFRA), in association with Korea Agro-Fisheries and Trade Corporation (aT), will showcase South Korea’s culinary potential with the first ever K-Food Fair in Dubai.
In celebration of South Korea’s rich array of creative talent and culinary prowess, Dubai is the destination for two events. The first is a business to business (B2B) platform taking place on Thursday, 26 November to encourage greater trade links between the two countries with a Halal seminar and a VIP cultural buyer’s dinner. In addition, both residents and tourists can experience a diversity of South Korean dishes in a food fair taking place 27-28 November in Zabeel Park.
The inaugural K-Food Fair includes a lineup of contests, including tangerine eating, persimmon stacking, picking ginseng with chopsticks, and culinary trivia questions.
“The increased number of tourists from the Middle East to South Korea, including the growth of Korean restaurants in the UAE indicated the ideal time to launch the first-ever K-FOOD Fair to introduce to Dubai. Creating new business opportunities for both communities while enabling the UAE’s residents to experience South Korea’s best-loved dishes is our key objective, and we look forward to sharing and establishing Korean food and culture more abundantly within the diverse landscape of the Emirates,” said Chung-Sik Yoo, Executive Vice President of Food Industry and Export Promotion for Korea Agro-Fisheries and Trade Corporation (aT).
