IAOM Middle East Operative Millers Conference

Basis Commodities MD, Chris Whitwell has just returned from a trip to the Middle East to formally welcome our new GM in Dubai, Nader Hassan to the business and to speak at the annual IAOM Middle East Operative Millers Conference on the island of Zanzibar, Tanzania.

This is the 17th he’s attended.

With over 525 people registered for the conference, it was a great networking event with good discussions covering a number of different technical and market topics.

In particular, Chris was involved in a successful panel session covering the strategies employed by successful millers to manage wheat price volatility. 

This was a fantastic opportunity to catch up with suppliers and customers all in one place. 

While at the conference, Chris was also able to tour Stone Town, the UNESCO heritage listed centre of Zanzibar City.

An amazing place with hospitable people.

A huge thank you to Said Salim Bakhresa Group and the organising committee of the IAOM for their efforts to make our stay so memorable.
