KPMG UAE Food and Beverage Report: Hungry for More?

Hungry for more?

In 2015, KPMG released its inaugural UAE Food & Beverage Survey. Our 2016 report builds on last year's survey, canvassing the views of 840 respondents. We have also looked at the market from an operator's perspective, focusing on the current state of the market, including opportunities and challenges. To do this, we spoke to leading industry executives representing many of the major brands in the UAE’s food and beverage (F&B) sector.
