The “Future of Agri-Tech” Virtual Forum in Canada and the UAE on June 15-16th , 2021 @ 09:00 am EDT aims to identify and explore new trade opportunities in the Food and Agri-Tech sectors in the region.

Opportunities in the Food Tech sector in the Middle East are growing and attracting investor interest. From 2014 to 2020, 33 investment deals in Food Tech startups have been made, amounting to $250M in disclosed investments. The Food Tech market is projected to grow from $13.5B to $22B over the next four years.

Canada and the UAE have enjoyed many years of bilateral trade. To further strengthen this relationship, Canada would like to work closely with UAE stakeholders to promote Food Tech in the UAE. Canada will do this by offering its wealth of Food Tech companies who specialize in developing state of the art smart farming practices and technologies.

Companies in the following sub-sectors are welcome to register for the Business Program:

  • precision farming
  • agrarian robotics
  • bioenergy
