The Business Director of Apex-Brasil, Ricardo Santana, said: “We are delighted that we supported 77 Brazilian companies to participate in Gulfood 2014, as they have received an enormous response that has surpassed our expectation. With the growing demand among end-users for more Brazilian food products and beverages, the event is a vital gateway for the regional traders to interact and seal trade deals with Brazilian companies. We are confident to sign more deals at the event to exceed last year’s USD 150 million figure.”

It also has a mezzanine space spanning 311 square meters allocated for networking and product sampling.
