Tamani named distributor for Canada drink
Doha, June 21, 2012
Tamani Foodstuffs, a Qatar-based subsidiary of the Empress Group, is the new sales and distribution partner for Gize, the non-alcoholic luxury drink from Canada.
By gaining Tamani as its exclusive partner for Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Yemen, Gize is once again expanding its activities in this region.
Tamani has experience in catering and in the sales and distribution of food and beverages for discerning connoisseurs, it said in a statement.
“By working with Tamani, we are able to benefit from a high-calibre partner whose excellent network and outstanding logistics are ideal for the successful placement of Gize in luxury hotels and gourmet venues,” states Babak Alikarm, export manager at Luxembourg-based Canadian Mineral Water, which is responsible for the worldwide distribution of Gize, the mineral water from Canada, and of Gize+, the non-alcoholic beverage.
“We value the company’s wealth of expertise in the food sector, as well as its outstanding reputation in the Middle East. It is essential that we have a dependable partner on whom our customers can rely.”
The objective of this collaboration is to make this gold-filtered luxury drink – available in six different varieties – a familiar part of the drinks menu in every luxury place in the Middle East, the statement said.
“A unique beverage such as Gize belongs in every outstanding establishment,” said Sheikha Bothayna Saif Al-Mannai, owner and CEO of Tamani Foodstuffs.
“We are extremely pleased that there is finally a non-alcoholic luxury beverage which is a worthy counterpart to champagne and other high-quality alcoholic drinks. It is something that had been missing until now, and we are very happy to be able to fill this need with Gize. I am certain that our partnership will be beneficial for everyone involved – and for our customers in particular,” she added.
Tamani owns stakes in numerous firms, and its operations include catering and the sale and distribution of foods such as chocolate and beverages from the premium and luxury segments in the Middle East. – TradeArabia News Service
