The distribution arm of Sainsbury’s, which is one of the UK’s largest food retailers, is preparing to establish a new operations hub in Sohar Port, launching over 12,000 FMCG products in the Middle East and Africa region. It’s the latest such collaboration for NBO, highlighting the bank’s tailor-made capabilities for multi-national corporations, while supporting projects that are contributing to the Sultanate’s economic development.
