Qatar, UAE, Oman and Egypt Tour

Over the past two weeks, our new General Manager of Basis Commodities Consulting DMCC Nader Hassan and Managing Director Chris Whitwell have been visiting grain and fodder customers in Qatar, UAE, Oman and Egypt. This trip was the first of several planned trips throughout 2023 for the Basis Commodities team and will play an important role in continuing to improve our understanding of the demand and quality requirements of our valued customers within the region.   

“We had a very positive trip to start 2023 and it was a great time to discuss the Australian new crop profile with our clients as well as visit new dairy and fodder clients on behalf of our fodder partners Balco Australia,” said Chris Whitwell.  

During the trip to Qatar, both Chris and Nader visited Salalah Flour Mills. In the photo below, Managing Director Ahmed Dahab is seen in a discussion with Nader Hassan in front of their stone mill.

The Basis team also visited Alexandria Port, Egypt to review preparations for a stock management agreement that was put in place for one of our clients.

The team at Basis Commodities continues to extend the reach and support for our clients and we look forward to seeing you at next week’s Gulfood between the 20th and 24th of February 2024 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Please feel free to contact Chris or Nader on the details below to arrange a meeting.
