This Handbook is intended to act as a reference for those agri-food producers planning for, or in the process of entering, the UAE market. This Handbook provides step-by-step guides on entering the agri-food market in the UAE including relevant information such as analysis of the UAE market for different product categories, market access and market entry procedures, IP protection, referrals to professional buyers and a signposting and referral system providing useful contacts and ways to penetrate the UAE market.


DISCLAIMER: Market Entry Handbooks are ordered by the European Commission well in advance and recent publications were finalised before Russia's military aggression against Ukraine. Therefore, the handbooks do not take into account the latest developments or effects on global agri-food trade.
