Pran bags $3.5m export orders at Dubai’s Gulfood fair

Bangladesh's leading food processor Pran has bagged $3.5 million worth of export orders from buyers in 76 countries at the Gulfood fair, one of the largest food fairs in the world.

Biscuit, noodles and confectionery items accounted for about 50 per cent of the order, the company said in a press release yesterday.

"Pran has received good response from the buyers in the fair," said Mizanur Rahman, Pran's executive director for export.

The five-day fair at the Dubai World Trade Centre in the UAE ended on February 25. About 2,500 exhibitors from 85 countries took part in the showcase. Rahman said the company secured most of the spot orders from Germany, England, Ghana, Mali, South Africa, and Yemen.

The group displayed around 500 products in 10 categories, including juice and beverage, confectionary, snacks, biscuit and bakery, culinary, dairy, spice and frozen items.

Rahman added that Pran participated in the fair maintaining proper hygiene and received good response from the participants.

"Agro-processing products have a huge demand across the world. Pran is trying to establish the sector as one of the most important sectors to earn foreign currency."

Pran exports products to 145 countries.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam and high officials of the commerce ministry and the Export Promotion Bureau also visited Pran's pavilion, according to the statement.
