Between Moscow and Dubai there is an infinity of differences, both in temperatures (from -17 ºC in Moscow to more than 40 degrees in Dubai), languages (Russian versus Arabic), cultural etc, but to these contrasts among many others, the company from Dos Hermanas will face in the next days.
That’s right, Torres and Ribelles S.A. will exhibit their olive oils at the International PRODEXPO fair that will be held these days from the 11th to the 15th of February in the Russian capital city, and only two days later, from the 17th to the 21st of February, in Dubai, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, at the international fair Gulfood.
According to Laura Amores, the Representative for Europe, “PRODEXPO is considered to be the biggest fair of the agri-food sector in Russia and in all the surrounding countries. It takes place every year and it is a great opportunity to expand our presence in those markets and close distribution agreements with new importers”.
On the other hand, Rafael Aznar, the Representative for Asia and Africa, adds that “Gulfood is the largest food fair in the Persian Gulf and the Middle East, which is also attended by many other importers and distributors from countries in Asia and Africa, looking for new business opportunities and new products. In many cases, they are countries that are growing economically in a very strong way, so that every year there is a greater number of people who use olive oil as a condiment on their dishes to the detriment of other less healthy oils, and this generates new opportunities for companies like ours”, says Rafael.
