Supplier access, on a level unseen before

We aim to be the go to center, for all information relating to Food & Beverage supplies in the UAE. We cover the main 3 macro sections, which are: F&B Suppliers, Equipment Suppliers, and Service Providers. Within these three sections we have structured our database to not be overwhelmingly diverse, but the 50+ sections that have been created enable you to navigate quick and easily to the suppliers which you need, not a search page full of random outdated information like other sites! We also have a blog which will hold some upto date information on all things F&B, from regulations, guides, and also some guest posts from market experts.

The site has been established by the Founder James Anderson, who whilst in the process of exploring some ideas for a Food Franchise, was astonished by the complete mess the online offerings in this area

t was literally a complete minefield of random, outdated information’ A simple search only showed 2 or 3 sponsored google companies, which cannot always be relied on, some of the best suppliers in the UAE are not actively promoting online, there are known only through word of mouth, the vision is to bring together all this information in a clean professional site which can actually help both parties, the Supplier and the business, so this is when the food directory was born.
