5 Health food trends in the UAE to keep an eye on | Bolst Global. The UAE, like many countries across the world, is seeing huge changes to its population in terms of attitudes to eating and consumption habits. But just what are these trends and what could they mean for your product’s entry into this huge market? Trend #1: a growing hunger for organic foods Organic food is the biggest and fastest growing market in the UAE region, driven by high disposable incomes coupled with a greater awareness of health issues and the benefits of organic produce; in a recent study in the UAE, around 80% of the sampled population agreed with the suggestion to improve availability, pricing and education in relation to organic produce. This is in line with government targets, as farmers are increasingly encouraged to use land to grow organically. However, the market is hugely limited by the climate of the area, as the lack of potable water and the high costs of desalination means that the UAE must rely heavily on imports.

Gulfood 2020: UAE aims to cut food waste by 50% There is enough food for the people on the planet but still millions of people go to bed hungry due to massive food wastage, a senior UAE official said on Monday. "One-third of food being produced globally goes waste when over 800 million people go to bed hungry every day.

So, there is enough food but distribution is not efficient," said Mariam bint Mohammed Saeed Hareb Al Muhairi, the UAE's Minister of State for Food Security. "Food security is necessary because we are heading towards very high number of people, therefore, food demand will rise. But our planet doesn't have more resources to give so we are going see food gap," Mariam said while giving the opening speech at the Gulfood 2020. "The UAE aims to reach 50 per cent decrease in food wastage by 2030 and we have KPI (key performance index) for that because the UAE imports 90 per cent of food, therefore, food safety and security standards are the top priority.

Agriculture, or as we are seeing now, Agritech, is a fast-growing (pardon the pun) industry that involves the practice of a variety of technologies to help disrupt the traditional sector as we know it. Around 90% of food in the GCC is imported, which in itself attracts several issues, including food security and food waste. Traditional ways of Agriculture in the region also carry problems, from water scarcity and soil erosion to a lack of mechanical innovation and 'poor quality' of land. We are now seeing regional startups using innovative and cutting-edge technologies to help solve these challenges, transform the archaic ways of the industry, and improve sustainability. Despite the funding rounds and increased interest in Agritech, the industry within the region is still developing, but appears to be on the up-and-up. 1. 2. 3. 5.

The UAE aims to cut its food waste by half over the next decade, the Minister of State for Food Security has said. The average person in the country wastes around 197 kilograms of food each year – more than double the figure for Europe. Speaking at the opening of an annual food industry conference this week, Mariam Almheiri said food security was a “top priority”. The authorities in the Emirates have reported that the issue costs the country a staggering Dh13 billion annually. “The UAE aims to reach 50 per cent decrease in food wastage by 2030,” the minister said.

“Because the UAE imports 90 per cent of its food, food safety and security are the top priority.” Studies have shown that substantial food waste is most prevalent among developed countries. Experts have said this is due to consumers in rich nations failing to plan purchases properly and buying more than they need. Ms Almheiri has argued for some time about the need for the UAE to “step up” its game on food waste. Yearly food waste in UAE pegged at 197kg per person | Uae. Annual food waste in the UAE is estimated at 197 kg per person, compared with 95 to 115 kg in Europe and North America, a top official of the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) told Gulf News on Tuesday. In an exclusive interview ahead of the World Food Day October 16, Mageed Yahia, director of WFP Office in UAE and Representative to the GCC, said the figures were based on a recent research report released by the Dubai Industrial Park and The Economist Intelligence Unit on the sidelines of Gulfood 2019.

“The study also noted that the Government of the UAE is taking steps to develop a regulatory framework to enable recycling of waste into compost,” he said, adding, “The UAE is aiming to recycle 75 per cent of its countries’ municipal solid waste over the next decade.” Yahia’s comments come in the wake of the #StopTheWaste movement for change, launched by WFP globally across social media platforms.
