Arab & India Spices, a United Arab Emirates company that imports and processes commodities, recently celebrated its 30th anniversary on a rooftop overlooking the bright lights of Dubai’s skyline.
The company has become Dubai’s largest pulse processor with a capacity of more than 15,000 tonnes a month. It is also the biggest importer of Canadian pulse crops into the UAE at 60,000 to 70,000 tonnes a year.
Managing director Harish Tahiliani said this important relationship with Canada has been critical in the company’s success and underscores the growing importance of Dubai as an emerging market for Canadian agriculture exports.
