Developing major new supply chains from Dubai
The Middle East’s love of coffee has long been central to its history and culture of warm hospitality. Today, DMCC is driving a major initiative to position Dubai at the heart of the world’s leading coffee supply chains. Building on the region’s historic trade links, we have launched a series of ambitious developments to expand Dubai’s resources, expertise and influence in the world of coffee.
Our state-of-the-art DMCC Coffee Centre offers world-class infrastructure and services for green bean storage, processing, roasting, packing and delivery of coffee to precise specifications. Bringing a fully dedicated, temperature-controlled coffee storage to the Middle East region for the first time, will benefit a wide range of stakeholders including coffee farmers, exporters, traders, roasters and retailers.
By connecting growers and exporters with global markets, the DMCC Coffee Centre has created new trading opportunities for all stakeholders in the coffee value chain. To date, the Centre has enabled the trade of 100+ coffee varieties from major growing regions such as Central and South America, Africa and Asia. This large global coffee sourcing footprint has made the Centre an attractive hub for businesses.
