SFF: MENA’s leading event for the gourmet and fine food industry

From 8-10 November 2022, The Speciality Food Festival will turn Dubai World Trade Centre into a bustling global marketplace and experiential ground for everything artisanal, speciality food and exotic ingredients. Catering to the exclusive hospitality & institutional sectors and the specialist buyers of premium products across the Middle East, The Speciality Food Festival returns with its unique platform where buyers can taste and sample premium brands.

The show will bring together the region’s top chefs, restauranteurs, hoteliers, retailers and food service providers to address the industry’s pressing needs and opportunities. With its 11th edition, the Specialty Food Festival is celebrating premium food exhibitors where well-known brands will showcase their products across 6 core sectors: Artisan & Gourmet, Organic & Free-From, Health & Wellness, Vegan & Plant Based, Food Service and Speciality Coffee, drawing almost thousands of buyers to the global centre for the international hospitality trade.

Visitors of the show will get the chance to meet and interact with hundreds of exhibitors from around the region, in what is one of the world’s biggest and busiest fine food marketplaces. Alongside these major trade deals, networking sessions and sourcing activities, attendees can also join a series of masterclasses, and watch the UAE Cup Tasters Championship.

The Cup Tasters Championship is one of the UAE’s most prestigious national coffee championships, attracting baristas, coffee professionals and enthusiasts. It highlights expertise in tasting and distinguishing levels of quality and flavour differences in speciality coffee and judges entrants on their ability to exhibit accuracy and speed when drawing on their superior palate, sense of smell, and attention to detail.

Also worth visiting at the show is Top Table, where a star-studded line-up of acclaimed and homegrown chefs, as well as brand leaders, will set the stage ablaze with their fiery culinary ideas and innovations through a series of workshops, demonstrations and cook-offs.
The Speciality Food Festival is co-located with four other events: Gulfood Manufacturing, GulfHost, ISM Middle East and Private Label & Licensing Middle East.
