We’re flying the flag for Wales on the world stage

Later this month we will be travelling to Dubai to attend Gulfood for the first time. Gulfood is one of the world’s largest food and drink trade exhibitions that reaches out to key countries within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

The exhibition attracts more than 5000 companies from more than 120 countries. This year, supported by the Welsh Government, 14 Welsh food and drink companies will be attending the exhibition under the Cymru/Wales banner.

Following a rebrand last year, we feel ready to expand into new export markets as Jeremy Stoker, UK and International Sales Development Manager explains,

“The aim of attending Gulfood is to create awareness of Edwards, The Welsh Butcher. Our history as a high street butcher who has grown to supply major retail, on-line and foodservice customers in the UK by producing premium sausages, burgers, meat balls and bacon with high standards (including Red Tractor and Welsh PGI beef accreditation) in a “AA” BRC production facility.

“We’d like to meet retailers, retail and foodservice distributors and meat wholesalers in the UAE who are able to sell our current range of sausages, burgers, meatballs and bacon as well as advise on demand and developing a customised range of Edwards products to sell across the GCC region.”
