AMMAN — The Jordan Exporters Association (JEA) recently arranged the participation of local food companies in SIAL Canada food exhibition hosted in Montreal last week, JEA President Halim Abu Rahmeh said Tuesday.

Nine Jordanian food companies took part in the event which is expected to open new export markets for local products, Abu Rahmeh noted. Department of Statistics' figures show that Jordanian exports to Canada in 2015 reached JD38.3 million, compared to JD36.4 million worth of Canadian exports to the Kingdom in the same year.

The JEA president also highlighted the importance of the Canadian market for the Jordanian food sector, due to the big Arab community it houses and its being a gateway for local products to enter the US market. He also noted that the association is preparing for other participations in Russian, French and Emirati exhibitions.
