The exhibition was host to representatives from all over the world including Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan, Jordan, Kenya and Europe.

M&J Chickens showcased products featured in their new Cooked Chicken Range which has been specifically developed for the food services industry. Feedback from the exhibition has been encouraging with local retailers and distributors eager to supply M&J Chickens product to the local market. Australian poultry products are of a far better quality and premium product in comparison to the poultry supplied from the largest producer of poultry in the world – Brazil.

This is a huge achievement for M&J as they continue to grow and innovate the business, further investing in their facilities to cater to the very unique retail sector in the UAE, including the development of new flavours and retail packaging. Opportunities include exporting to major airline caterers, hotel chains, pizza chains, and supplying to local Australian distributors exporting to the UAE.
