The United Arab Emirates (UAE) with its larger population, larger influx of tourists and business-people coupled with its vibrant re-export activities is the second largest market for food products. Within the U.A.E., Dubai is the country’s commercial center and the region’s trade hub. Efficient infrastructure (sea, land and air ports), large free trade zones and a strong business orientation make Dubai an important commercial center in the Middle East. Dubai derives sizable revenue from the re-export business and invests heavily in infrastructure, while luring foreign investment and buyers.

The advantages for U.S. exporters of consumer ready food products to the region are numerous. They include a high quality image of U.S. products, high regional per capita incomes, and a broad familiarity with U.S. culture. There are also consistently low tariffs and relatively transparent import procedures. 

U.S. exports of consumer ready food products totaled US$779.5 million in 2018. The UAE also imported US$401.4 million of U.S. processed foods in 2018.
