Demand for Indian chicken, dairy, basmati rice, wheat products rises in Mid-Easttext_fields
Dubai: The UAE food industry requested cooperation from the Indian government for imports, citing the enormous demand in Middle Eastern nations for chicken, dairy, basmati rice, frozen marine products, and wheat imports from New Delhi. In order to streamline certification procedures, improve collaboration with the Agricultural & Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), and harmonise standards, the UAE sector has asked the Indian government for support.
They also said that high-quality packaging of Indian products would help boost New Delhi players to increase exports of food and food products in countries like Bahrain, Kuwait, the Sultanate of Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal, who was in the UAE, last week held detailed discussions with these importers and discussed ways to increase exports from India.
"There is huge scope for India to export frozen products in these countries," Global Food Industries LLC Head of Sales UAE (Frozen and Beverages) Nissar Thalangara said.
