Food distribution is a serious challenge in the Middle East since supplying the best quality food product at a reliable price in the growing economy is a growing concern. Not all parts of the Middle East are economically well established. Government has to take note of the various economic conditions the country has to face every now and then.
Hence, to have a thorough survey on the issue of “food distribution” the government and various organizations organize conferences and meeting among all the major food distributors across the country. Effective measures are taken, presentations are shown, sessions are conducted and there is information exchange and introduction of new ideas and possibilities. One of the major areas of focus is the widespread issue of hygiene and sanitation among the food products. Outbreak of diseases and the way they are affecting the food crops are a thing, one needs to primarily discuss since it affects a major portion of the crop and agricultural industry.
The people who are in these conferences are mainly the dieticians, food distributors, technologists, health care professionals, integrated health promoters, fitness professionals, research scientists, food industrialists and so on. For instance food distribution companies in Qatar like Almaya Distribution and other international trading group aiming to lead the food distribution sector by providing high variety of food materials in the best affordable price to the people in and around the country, i.e. local and regional market to customers and business partners. Main areas of concern in these conferences are nutrition, food technology, processing of food products, how to increase the quality of the product without much increase in the production cost, food distribution, malnutrition, food analysis techniques and so on. These conferences and meeting also focus on the variety of food products and their useful and harmful effects. A major area of emphasis is also on the packaging of the products.
For instance, nowadays the food distributors in Iran are flourishing in FMCG Market. There is a lot of improvement in the distribution sector to all the parts of the country and distribution of Consumer Packaged Goods. Increasing trend of online shopping has also saved time and value of the products and customers. In the fast moving consumer goods industries, they collaborate with the dependable distribution partners. Going beyond logistics, distributing the food products in a capillary network, are one of the major priorities discussed over in the food conferences in the Middle East and its growing and flourishing in this sector.
