Join us for the International Dairy Conference and the Animal Production in the United Arab Emirates Conference at EuroTier Middle East 2019 from 2 – 4 September in Abu Dhabi

Due to the expanding population, development of retail opportunities and the popularity of new product lines such as flavoured milk and yogurt, the dairy sector in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is booming.

In the UAE, dairy farm companies have plans to double in size seeing the yearly demand for dairy and dairy products increasing by approximately 20%. However, harsh climate conditions and the infancy of cold chain technology in this sector seen in the Middle East and North Africa region are for example among some of the many obstructions that producers have encountered along the way to realizing their objective to address the demand in the market.

In addition to leveraging the latest advancement in dairy farming technology, key herd and farm management techniques and scientific know-how is critical to overcoming these barriers.

EuroTier - the world’s leading brand of trade fairs for animal farming professionals is coming to Abu Dhabi, UAE. EuroTier Middle East is organized by the German Agricultural Society (DLG), with the objective to create an ideal platform for the productive exchange of information at a global level with a regional focus.
