UAE Ministry of Economy has entered into a strategic partnership with Saudi Arabia-based food and beverage (F&B) and retail technology startup, Foodics to achieve a strong partnership between the public and private sectors in order to foster SME growth locally and globally.

As part of the agreement, the two entities will collaborate on several initiatives to support SME growth. Some of these activities will include workshops that will enable selected UAE-based F&B enterprises to optimize strategies and business operations, improve supply chain management as well as boost sales, marketing strategies and financial performance.

Foodics will also offer exclusive rates and benefits of its products and solutions through the Ministry’s Entrepreneurial Nation platform and will facilitate industry as well as market insights to catalyze and ease the growth of the sector and its stakeholders.
