Food in the UAE: a burgeoning industry
Posted on 30 September 2014 by UAE Business

The food industry in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is already large and is growing rapidly. This is no surprise given the wealthy local and expatriate population of the area, and the burgeoning tourist sector. New dining establishments are continually springing up around the UAE and some of the world’s most highly renowned eateries are now based there.
Locals and visitors can take their pick of somewhere to eat from a host of fine dining
establishments. Pier 7 in Dubai is a classic example. This stylish building contains seven different restaurants on each of its floors, offering a host of cuisines.
The trigger
Rapid growth in the travel and tourism industry is feeding the rising interest in dining. Highlighting the strength of the travel sector in the UAE, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry released figures in May suggesting that it will create over 200,000 jobs by 2023.
In addition, the report claimed that capital investment in travel and tourism will register an average annual rise of 4.5%, to reach AED143.4 billion in 2023.
The study also highlighted Dubai’s dominance. The emirate holds a 66% share of the UAE’s overall tourism economy, while Abu Dhabi and Sharjah have 16% and 10% respectively.
Meanwhile, according to statistics provided by the World Travel 7 Tourism Council, the direct contribution of travel and tourism to GDP in 2013 in the UAE was AED56.5 billion. The organisation also predicts this will rise by 4.7% to AED59.1 billion this year.

An eclectic mix

The UAE is a truly international hub. As well as the millions of visitors who pour into the emirates from across the globe, more than 200 nationalities live and work there. This has helped to shape the dining scene. A plethora of eateries can be found in the UAE, ranging from fast food to fine dining and from local dishes to European and South American specialties.
Also, a host of the world’s finest chefs have restaurants in the region’s hotels, including Gary Rhodes, Marco Pierre White, Nobu Matsuhisa and Pierre Gagnaire. In addition, the area now plays host to major food festivals. Each year, usually in March, the Taste of Dubai Festival takes place, while Gourmet Abu Dhabi is staged in February.
The UAE’s food sector is among the fastest growing in the world. It’s a trend that shows no sign of slowing down.
