The food and beverages industry is a prolific global industry as consumption is reaching new levels. The UAE is no exception considering the high purchase power of the population in emirates like Dubai and Abu Dhabi. However, not only selling food products and beverages of all sorts represents a good business opportunity in Dubai, but also the manufacturing of such products.
Foreign investors interested in starting a company in the manufacturing industry can set up a beverages manufacturing plant in Dubai. From alcoholic beverages to soft and energy drinks and even bottled water, one can find a suitable niche to operate in. However, it should be noted that not long ago the UAE amended the legislation related to selling energy drinks.
Our company incorporation consultants in Dubai can offer detailed information on the legislation related to manufacturing drinks.
