DUBAI 27th November 2009 — The seventh edition of the the only regional natural and organic products show, the Middle East Natural and Organic Products Exhibition, or MENOPE 2009, is all set to open in Dubai with over 100 exhibitors from across the world showcasing a wide range of green-friendly products over three days from December 7-9 2009.
MENOPE 2009 comes at a time when the Middle East has maintained its lead as the fastest growing destination for natural and organic foods despite economic recession impacting the uptake of the products globally.
The show in its successful seventh year now is being organised by the Dubai-based Global Links, a leading event and exhibition company which pioneered the exhibition.
Commenting on the potential MENOPE 2009 offers to exhibitors, Eng. Nadim Al Fuqaha, Managing Director, Global Links, said, “MENOPE 2009 has been able to retain its ubiquitous status as the only show that opens doors to the natural and organic products market of the Middle East thanks to the regional market’s undiminished growth potential – Middle East is seen to buck a global downward trend and is continuing to post a growth rate of over 15 per cent annually.”
MENOPE 2009 is being held under the patronage of the UAE’s Ministry of Health & Ministry of Environment & Water.
