Commenting on the agreement, DMCC’s chief operating officer, Feryal Ahmadi, said: “This partnership will come as welcome news to investors, businesses and the international sugar trade as a whole. We are confident that when complete, this new platform will help drive significant international sugar trade volumes through the emirate of Dubai.”
Meanwhile, Al Khaleej Sugar’s Managing Director, Jamal Al Ghurair, noted: “As the largest standalone sugar refinery in the world, with capacity to hold more than 1.6 million tons of sugar, we are delighted to be able to set up a sugar platform on such a robust and established platform as DMCC Tradeflow.”
