Pistachio firm posts solid ME growth
Dubai, June 11, 2012
Paramount Farms, one of the world’s largest vertically integrated growers of Californian pistachios and almonds, said it has registered a three-fold sales growth in the Middle East region.
The San Joaquin Valley, California-headquartered Paramount Farms entered the Middle East market in 2008 and has since been able to increase sales year after year and gain distribution throughout the Mena markets.
Currently the company has a major presence in 17 countries in the Middle East including the UAE, Egypt, Kuwait, Libya and Saudi Arabia.
Paramount Farms continues its impressive growth course in the region, providing its industrial and retail customers with consistently superior quality, food safety and service, said Lieven Plets, the director of Europe, Middle East and Africa industrial sales.
In tandem with its growing partners the Californian company farms 50,000 hectares of pistachio and almond orchards, making it the world’s largest tree farmer, he stated.
“As we are the grower, processor and marketer at the same time we can provide unmatched quality control, consistency and oversight of the entire supply chain from tree to final product,” explained Plets.
'Thanks to a warehouse located in Jebel-Ali and an office in Dubai we can guarantee short delivery times as well as flexible sales and marketing support,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
