It’s difficult to imagine how our worlds and realities have changed so drastically since we first heard whispers about this virus in a largely unheard of Chinese province just four months ago.
I’ll be honest – I didn’t take it all that seriously at that point. Brexit was still at the forefront of most people’s minds and especially those like myself involved in international trade and could see the impact and uncertainty looming of leaving the European Union. (more…)
So I haven’t blogged for a LONG time, not this year in any case…a combination of being busy with several trips (visiting five continents in six months) and focusing more on video content. Ah, what am I saying?! In reality we know this is really me just making excuses!
And as someone who is a go getter and doer I’ll admit that to myself and everyone else, especially after an amazing time in New York which has given me the headspace to reflect and re energise. I don’t think I realised how much I needed that! For anyone trying to build a business you do need that time out, despite how busy and hungry for success you are. I’ve understood this the most this year!
In this month newsletter we are covering the following subjects:
- Our next Gulf visit
- Australia market insights
- Videos about international trade fairs, Qatar and Kuwait
- Upcoming events in 2019
Hope you enjoy it!
We’re wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2019!

Due to client demand we have been taking a closer look at the Australian market and found some great business opportunities for food and drink brands there. The economy is strong and health and wellness play a major role in consumer habits. As such innovative food and drink companies may find huge potential in the market. Thanks to our collaborator Jayne for providing us with the content for this blog and the photos! Read on if you want to know more about this market place and the opportunities for your brand there….
Last year, oil prices deteriorated and as a result so did the Saudi Arabian economic growth and its consumer expenditure.
But does that mean fewer opportunities in the Saudi Arabia market?
No, most definitely not… at least when it comes to the food and drink sector. In fact the change in the way consumers spend money, the altered preferences in the food and drink sector as well as the governmental plans and reforms have created many untapped opportunities in this market, which is often seen as complex and difficult to navigate.
