Bidfood UAE Donates 1,000 Iftar Meal Kits To Underprivileged Communities


Bidfood UAE partnered yet again with Taste Studio to cook, pack and distribute 1,000 Iftar meal kits to underpriviledged communities in Jebel Ali Free Zone area.   In line with Bidfood Middle East's commitment to the community and in the spirit of giving instilled within millions around the world during the Holy Month of Ramadan - and beyond, Bidfood UAE has joined hands once again with Taste Studio, one of the leading catering companies in Dubai, to donate 1,000 Iftar meal kits to people in need around JAFZA.      Because everbody deserves to have a warm and filling Iftar to break their fast, nine of our Bidfoodies worked tirelessly together for six hours to prepare meals made with love and packaged with care.   On the menu:  1. Chicken Birayni 2. Dates 3. Cake 4. Water   The day started with preparing the boxes that would carry the food. All nine volunteers sat around a table, dividing tasks to efficiently finish building the boxes in time for the next step. They told anecdotes, craked jokes, sang along, and shared laughs.      Next up, food! Our volunteers split into teams, some handled the sweet station, some the savory. They scooped and packaged - all while showing the true spirit of being a Bidfoodie: working together as one for a greater cause.           Lastly, all nine Bidfoodies formed a human chain to package the delights into the boxes, including a bottle of water, which were then placed into Taste Studio trucks and delivered to those in need around JAFZA.     We are proud of our volunteers (Khurram, Fareed, Pamela, Jihad, Dina, Catherine, Charizma, Samer, and Lynn) for their selfless efforts and for embodying Bidfood's values! Special thanks to Hitesh, Zulekha and everybody from Taste Studio for having us over and for making it an unforgettable day.   Eid Mubarak!

Bidfood UAE Partners with Wet Fish via Majority Acquisition


Bidfood UAE has partnered with specialized seafood supplier, Wet Fish, via majority acquisition.    The strategic partnership comes as a step towards developing Bidfood’s protein category, particularly seafood, and unlocking potential opportunities within the two companies to efficiently serve the UAE’s foodservice market.     Wet Fish, a family-run business born in the UAE 16 years ago, was founded by Mark Allan with one goal in mind: to source and supply high-grade fish and seafood to local fine dining restaurants, hotels, and top-end hospitality operators in the UAE. The company established a top-class self-contained facility in Dubai Investments Park where all seafood items go through elaborate processing that saves customers preparation time, cuts unnecessary food waste, and ensures a more consistent end product. The latter includes descaling, cleaning, filleting, pin boning, and portioning, all under safe and hygienic HACCP accredited standards.    “Partnering with Mark and his family at Wet Fish helps capitalize on both companies’ capabilities and available resources to achieve a healthy growth within the industry – which in turn creates value to all stakeholders involved,” says Hisham Al Jamil, Bidfood Middle East CEO. “Wet Fish’s entrepreneurial mindset fits perfectly with Bidfood’s ethos.”    Part of Bidfood UAE’s unfaltering belief – and ultimately its business success – lies in adopting a decentralized organizational structure and preserving the autonomy of business leaders. Accordingly, Wet Fish will continue to be run by its current founding team, yet will benefit from Bidfood’s best practices and learnings for its growth and expansion.     Echoing Al Jamil’s sentiment on the partnership, Allan said, “Bidfood has long proven why they are the leading partner to the foodservice industry. We are certain that combining Bidfood UAE’s capabilities with Wet Fish’s proposition will contribute to the long-term success of the business partnership and lead to our exponential growth in the UAE.”   Bidfood’s vision remains to be - and always be - the leading partner to the foodservice channel, and its investment in Wet Fish is the first of many opportunities to partner with, and boost, businesses of high potential within the foodservice industry in the region.       About Bidfood UAE Bidfood UAE is the leading foodservice distributor in the UAE and a part of JSE-listed Bidcorp Group. It caters to all seven Emirates through an extensive category and brand portfolio of more than 20 brands pertaining to bakery items, dairy products, seafood, protein, condiments, pantry staples, ready-made meals, and beverage items.   About Wet Fish Wet Fish is a wholesale seafood supplier that started as a family business 16 years ago with a clientele of some of the most highly-regarded restaurants around the world.
