Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, the DMCC, partnered with Boncafé Middle East, to produce locally roasted coffee at its Coffee Centre. The signing of the partnership was attended by the Executive Chairman and CEO of the DMCC, Ahmed bin Sulayem, and CEO, and group executive director of Boncafé, Tony Billingham.
The DMCC is Dubai governments flagship Free-Zone, for commodities trade and enterprise. The DMCC Coffee Centre provides world-class infrastructure and services, connecting the Middle Eastern and European markets to the world’s major coffee-producing nations.
Under the agreement, in addition to producing locally roasted coffee that will boost trade flows into Dubai, the DMCC Coffee Centre will also produce and distribute a range of bespoke coffee products tailored specifically for Boncafé, across the Gulf Cooperation Council.
DMCC is proud to partner with Boncafé, a true powerhouse in the coffee industry in the region for 18 years, to provide them with a range of bespoke services to facilitate their global trade. This collaboration underpins our strategy of providing world-class services, from roasting and quality control, through to packaging and distribution, that cater to the entire coffee value chain.
It also truly reflects the strong reputation the Coffee Centre has built, and its ability to attract leading coffee players, in turn, positioning Dubai as a global hub for speciality coffee. We thank Boncafé for choosing us as their partner and very much look forward to working alongside their teams.Executive Chairman and CEO of the DMCC, Ahmed bin Sulayem
Through this partnership, Boncafé Middle East, a manufacturer and distributor of coffee and coffee machines — will be promoted in the larger Middle East and North Africa region.
To partner with DMCC is a natural progression for the Boncafé & Massimo Zanetti Beverage Group, and this further shows the group’s commitment to develop locally roasted UAE coffees. This will undoubtedly enhance our brand’s position throughout the whole Middle East region, being now produced locally in the UAE.Group Executive Director of Boncafé, Tony Billingham.
This partnership will benefit all parties, serving both the local and global market — DMCC Coffee Centre, will emphasise its position as a leading coffee trade and production centre, that is on par with global coffee markets like the USA, Italy and Switzerland. Boncafé will gain traction in the UAE, which is one of the most developed coffee markets in the region.
