Home-based industries thrive at Bedaya Center Qatar Food Fest

The Bedaya Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Centre) helps strengthen the productivity of home-based industries by allowing them the opportunity to join the Qatar Food Fest within the Bedaya pavilion. This is a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, and the food fest will run until the end of March 2020 at Sheraton Park, Bedaya Centre.

This invaluable opportunity will provide a great assistance to all kinds of entrepreneurs to participate and promote their businesses with a small monthly basis registration and nominal charges (QR3,000 per month only). This will not only help businesses see how the market works, but it will also provide them with a golden opportunity to study niche requirements and competitiveness to help them further improve their products.

According to Reema al-Khater, marketing manager at Bedaya Centre, “We would like to thank Alnoor Company for the collaboration and support they provided for startups in their festival. We are participating in this year’s Qatar Food Fest with an area that was dedicated to Bedaya Centre on a subsidised price with the aim of providing the opportunity for home-based food projects and emerging food businesses, as well as for small projects specialised in producing food-related products to participate in this public event.”

Furthermore, Reema al-Khater added that “Priority will be given to new local startups, which have been operational for less than three years, and to projects that have a home-based licence or commercial registration, and to those who don’t have existing restaurant/shops or outlets.”

Initiatives like this one will inevitably attract more start-ups to take the leap and encourage them to make sound investment decisions, further contributing to the overall enhancement of the investment landscape in Qatar in this sector of the industry. It will also give home-based industries the perfect avenue to try out their products and be bolder when it comes to launching products and services with minimal risk and with the help of the supportive government.
