For his part, Mr. Ammar Awachi, President of Alwane Bahrain Society, said that the food industry in Bahrain has become one of the most advanced economic sectors in strengthening the national economy, adding that Bahrain’s participation in Gulfood would provide more growth opportunities for national companies.

“We will focus our attention on companies and food establishments led by women within the framework of Alwane Bahrain Society to economically empower Bahraini women and encourage them to participate in this exhibition in a way that boosts the presence of Bahraini women as pioneers and businesswomen in the food industry sectors,” According to Mr. Awachi.

Eight Bahraini startups are expected to participate in the Bahrain national pavilion at Gulfood 2023, along with ten major food enterprises. It is worth noting that hundreds of international companies engaged in industrial and commercial activities in the field of manufacturing and trading food and hospitality from around the world gather at this international event to exchange the latest ideas and market trends in this sector and learn about the latest technologies and innovations.
