THE MARKET – SAUDI ARABIA
Saudi Arabia’s Food and Beverage (F&B) market is the largest in the Middle East. The F&B market is experiencing growth, and there is an increasing consumer demand for organic F&B products in Saudi Arabia due to a growing population and an increased awareness of healthy F&B consumption. There is a large potential for Danish companies to tap into the organic F&B market and we hope this is one of many successful organic promotion visits to Saudi Arabia in the near future.
