Food is the most important basic need for Human society. The food and beverage industry is the highest fast-growing industry on earth.

According to the Economic Census of 2016, there are about 246 medium-sized food and beverage companies in the country, providing employment opportunities to 19% of the manufacturing workforce and 8% of the total workforce. Between 2014 and 2017, the industry grew at an average rate of 7.7% per year.

Similarly, in Dubai, supermarkets stock toast biscuits produced by the Bangladeshi Pran-RFL Group.
