Export drive via trade fairs of food processing industry


A delegation from the Syndicate of Lebanese Food Industrialists presided by George Nasraoui visited the Beirut and Mount Lebanon Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture, last week to discuss a number of issues of concern to the food processing industry in Lebanon namely agricultural production, the rise in transportation costs via the Lebanon ports and cost of lab tests, in addition to the various difficulties faced in exporting to the USA and in participating in international trade fairs notably in Australia and other countries that are potential markets to Lebanon.
The Beirut and Mount Lebanon CCIA president and the president of the Federation of CCIA in Lebanon, Mr. Mohammad Shucair agreed on the importance of increasing Lebanese exports and noted a plan currently under preparation by the CCIA and seeking to support the participation of Lebanon in key international trade events and conferences.  This, they noted, will allow the Lebanese economy to expand and will increase the presence of Lebanon in world economy and foreign markets.
Nasraoui for his part stressed the importance of the Gulf Food exhibition, which is an annual exhibition that takes place in Dubai in February, maybe replace by fair trade where the Lebanon exhibition area occupies 400 square meters.  Yet, the Syndicate has asked for a larger space in view of the increasing demand for participation from Lebanese producers.
At the end of the visit, the Syndicate presented Shucair with a trophy in recognition of the efforts that he extended in support of the participation of Lebanese industries in international trade fairs.
