GIG Catering Services launches in the UAE
GIG, the catering division of Global Infusion Group, has partnered up with Foodie Brands Catering Services, the Dubai-based food production and catering company, to expand into the United Arab Emirates.
The new brand, GIG Catering Services LLC, will “provide high-end food, beverage, and hospitality services to the UAE market” according to a statement.
A key focus of GIG Catering Services LLC will be to provide dedicated catering and hospitality solutions to Expo 2020, the world expo that will see more than 190 countries participate and welcome millions of visitors to Dubai from October 20, 2020, until April 10, 2021.
Tony Laurenson, founder and chief executive officer of Global Infusion Group, commented on the new venture: “Following our successful appointment as the exclusive caterer for UK Pavilion at Expo 2020 growing demand from clients, it made perfect business sense for GIG to partner with Foodie Brands and open an operation in the UAE. We recognised the same passion and drive to deliver premium event catering, food production and service in Foodie Brands that we pride ourselves on. GIG Catering Services LLC will combine our skills with those of Foodie Brands in order to deliver world-class culinary expertise in the region.”
Kareem Abughazaleh, CEO of Foodie Brands added: “Being in a position to partner with a company of Global Infusion Group’s global stature is an exciting step for everyone within Foodie Brands and something that the team is incredibly proud of. We’re confident that we will be able to provide world class support and added value to all future projects in the region.
