The Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) has announced that the Food Trucks District has received more than 160,000 visitors in less than two months since its launch.
The new designated area for food trucks was officially unveiled on October 22, 2020 and the new destination for food lovers in the Kingdom of Bahrain has been well-equipped with latest safety measures to safeguard the wellbeing of every visitor in light of the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.
Launched to support promising Bahraini projects and to empower food truck owners, the District has played a vital role in directly contributing towards providing an ideal environment to the emerging food-truck industry in the Kingdom of Bahrain in a bid to achieve its potential as well as enable it to play a part in promoting the local tourism sector.
Commenting on this, Dr. Nasser Ali Qaedi, CEO of BTEA underscored that the Authority has harnessed all its capabilities to ensure the success of the District which is housing 50 food trucks that are serving various dishes and meals, stating that the owners of the trucks are enjoying various services such as security, electricity and cleaning at nominal cost.
Moreover, BTEA has implemented strict precautionary measures in line with the national efforts to combat Covid-19 and protect the health and safety of all visitors. This includes adapting the area and the dining space to ensure social-distancing as well as having e-services in place when ordering food by scanning barcodes embedded on the tables to avoid queues.
It's worth noting that BTEA has adopted a comprehensive and integrated strategic plan to promote Bahrain's tourist attractions and destinations in conformity with Bahrain’s 2030 Economic Vision.
