From Saeed Ahmed Al-Mahroos & Sons Co.
AlMahroos Company was one of the very pioneers to modernize food imports and distribution in Saudi Arabia and Gulf region. Company’s annual imports from India is 50 million dollars.
Attending IndusFood II gave us valuable opportunity to introduce our company to many new Indian business people.
Thanks to IndusFood, we were fortunate to discover many new products and new suppliers and to start new business ventures and to explore first hand features of new products for marketing.
In IndusFood we had a chance to meet with new suppliers and some of our existing suppliers. Listening to speech of Union Minister of Food Processing Industries Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal gave us very good insight into India’s plans and objectives to improve, expand and upgrade Indian food processing industry.
IndusFood has been organized and executed in excellent way. I salute the organizers for the great efforts and the success they have achieved. We much appreciate the VIP hospitality organized by IndusFood.. This will indeed reflect on expanding our mutual trade ties.

Dear Mr. Mohit Singla,
Thank you for hosting me and my team in India and for ensuring a smooth and productive facilitation at the second edition of IndusFood in Delhi. All the arrangements including the logistics to and fro from the airport were flawless. We also benefited hugely from the various business meetings set up for us. We appreciate all the attention to detail and the tremendous effort yourself and your entire team have put together to deliver a stellar IndusFood second edition.
Although, we are distributors and partners with some of the very best from India for a sustained period of time, with partnership including with the likes of TATAs, Godrej Consumer, Marico Industries, Britannia, Amul and the likes, we still found tremendous value at the exhibition. We have shortlisted at least 4 of the suppliers we would like to work closely with and have set the ball rolling to discuss the steps needed to trade with them in Oman.
Thank you for a superb IndusFood-II. You and your team have made a significant difference to helping us enhance business with India.

Dear Mr. Ashok,
First of all, I thank you for the invitation to participate in the recently concluded IndusFood Exhibition in India. I humbly say that it was a great experience to attend the exhibition. I would like to share my experience & feedback as below.
Since the time of arrival at IGI, New Delhi, I found that the preparation was par-excellent, to give a wonderful experience to the participating delegates. You had very courteous and knowledgeable staff at Air Port, Hotel & at the exhibition centre. There were hassle free arrangements to pick up the guests from the airport to hotel & vice versa. Transport arrangements from hotel to the exhibition center too were quite good and convenient. Food served at the exhibition center was of very good quality, in addition, the staff of the caterer was very much service oriented. I have participated/attended exhibitions around the world, with great pride, I can say that the arrangements made by you and your team was of “World Class”.
Pertaining to Exhibition
From the day one of the invitation to us, we observed that your team is doing their best to make the exhibition a grand success. Be it personalized attention to the meetings with the potential business partners, providing information, having dash-board to organize the information/schedules etc. The participating companies (exhibitors) were quite known in their respective categories. Also the quality of exhibitors & visitors were very good. We are in advance discussion with some of the potential business partners. The award ceremony & cultural programmes were quite mesmerizing.
In addition, as you are aware, we are representing some of the finest FMCG companies originating from India, I got an opportunity to meet majority of them at the exhibition center.
Overall, I must say, it was a well-planned, managed & coordinated exhibition.
Kudos to you and your able team to manage this exhibition so successfully.

It was a real pleasure being there and seeing the opportunities to explore.
Will surely be there in the next IndusFood in 2020!
Wish you all the best and a grand success.

Dear Mr. Ashok
Thank you for inviting me to the 2nd edition of IndusFodo giving Foodco the opportunity not only to have access to the Food Supplier Base from India and their several offers in terms of actual products but also for giving exposure to several potential innovative ideas. A major opportunity to network with the UAE and India based decision makers in the Food industry, including retailers, was provided, which was great. I enjoyed the B2B discussion with the Tea suppliers and other similar activities.
I would like to highlight the importance of this Exhibition and the opportunity for networking in the context of the present worldwide supply management challenges, which will necessarily result in trade benefits for both buyers and sellers.
The hospitality was simply excellent in Greater Noida.
CEO, Foodco Holding PJSC
This was my first visit to Indus-Food. And, it turned out to be a very good experience.
Traditional Indian hospitality as reflected in great logistical arrangements pertaining to transfers, comfortable stay at the hotel, gala evening, etc – in just second edition of the event – holds a great promise for the future events. The organization of the expo was very well handled.
The energy in the expo-halls for most part of the day was addictive and we were able to strike a good rapport with some of the participating set-ups. The discussions are underway to translate the same into win-win business associations.
A notable feature was the innovation exhibited by some of the start-ups in the expo – a brilliant testimony to famed Indian entrepreneurial streak aptly show-cased by TPCI.
Thank you for everything.
I see myself coming again to Indus-Food and, recommending the same to other business-colleagues.

Greeting from Bangladesh Agro-Processors’ Association (BAPA).
I am writing this email on behalf of President A F M Fakhrul Islam Munshi and EC Members of BAPA who has participated at Indusfood 2019. We are really honored and pleased for your hospitality from top to bottom. It was really our great experience where we got the opportunity to interact with Indian exporters under one roof. Besides, TPCI enormously played a vital role – like a bridge – in facilitating B2B meetings with other countries.
Indeed it was a fruitful discussion wherein we were able to put forth face to face the challenges & opportunities in food processing sector with Indian Government officials, private sector partners and other dignitaries in the round table meeting on 14th Jan 2019.
We would like to thank you again for your excellent management of what has turned out to be successful and highly stimulating event. We enjoyed the event very much; nice participants and wonderful place.
We look forward to hear from you to enter into a longstanding relationship between Bangladesh and India through TPCI’s help.

Dear Mr. Ashok,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all and congratulate you for organizing yet another successful INDUSFOOD expo.
The show this year was much more extended with a wide range of top class Indian food producers, processors and exporters. Indeed I had a few promising meeting with some new suppliers of food and agricultural products, and can confirm the since my return home and through several food companies in Bahrain that I represent at least a couple of new businesses with Indian suppliers did materialize, I am quite confident that this and other follow ups will lead to some fruitful business relations between the two countries.
I must also express my sincere thanks and appreciations to you and your team at INDUSFOOD for your hospitality and good care given to us during our stay in India. Good luck to you all and hope to meet again

Dear Mr. Singla,
At the outset please accept my gratitude and congratulations for the tremendously successful NDUS FOOD Trade Fair organized by the team of Trade Promotion Council of India in Noida during this month.
In my view it was very well attended and each and every guest/participant had nothing but praise for the meticulous planning and execution of the event. The hospitality was great and so were the TPCL officers and staff. Indeed it was a very pleasant experience.
A couple of months ago when Mr. Ashok Sethi, Director TPCL had phoned me explaining the mission I was not very confident how it would end up. His visit to Kuwait and my interaction with him compelled me to go all out assisting him in realizing and accomplishing the targeted mission. Although I am not in the business of Food I noticed the sincere commitment of Mr. Sethi in promoting Food products from India to the world.
I was inspired and made it sure that he could reach out to the maximum number of genuine importers from Kuwait. I am very confident that the Fair will get better and bigger every year with you at the helm and Officers like Mr. Ashok Sethi on the field.
I wish TPCL a great success in future Fairs to generate maximum exports. It is an ideal platform for interaction of buyers and sellers.
Having signed MOU with TPCL we assure you our full assistance and cooperation to TPCI.
