Pulsar Foodstuff Trading started their journey over 10 years ago supplying Mini-Bar and Bar Snack products to the hospitality industry in the Emirate of Dubai. Over the years they have developed into a company that focuses on delivering the highest quality products across the entire United Arab Emirates, surrounding GCC countries and exclusive hotel resorts in the Maldives and Seychelles.
As a sponsor of The Big F&B Forum, Stephen Bennett, Pulsar Foodstuff general manager, says: “In business it is always important to keep yourself moving forward. By sponsoring events such as The Big F&B Forum it keeps us in direct contact with our target clientele, gives us the opportunity to potentially meet new clients and keeps us up to date with the hot topics from the food and beverage world. It will also give us the chance to showcase some of our new product ideas and thoughts moving forward into the new season.”
With a lot of new establishments under development and many more recently completed. Stephen says: “Lowering oil prices and a drop in the euro has seen a reduction in visitors to the region. The result is that the amount of potential customers is being spread very thin for every outlet throughout the country. The difficulties from this are obvious, and presents a challenge to each and every outlet.”
Stephen has a particular interest in the panel discussion on ‘The role of F&B in the obesity crisis’. He says: “As a direct supplier to the F&B category through minibars, this is directly related to our business. We already have a number of products that are aimed at complementing this issue, such has organic healthy products. But learning how the entire industry plans to move forward on the issue and what changes to hotel packaging and promoting of products are of major relevance to us.”
Pulsar Foodstuff Trading will be showcasing its new company The Gourmet Olive Market, which is offering the UAE and greater GCC the world’s finest olives. “We are very excited about our new venture and by showcasing our new product at such forums we are getting it straight in front of some of our direct customer targets,” says Stephen.
