Bidfood UAE announced today its appointment as the distributor of Kraft Heinz’s products in the UAE’s foodservice channel.
Not only does the recently-established partnership entail the push of Kraft Heinz’s core items, i.e. Heinz Ketchup and Mayonnaise, but it also means a focus on the introduction of the company’s wider range of brands such as the Bull’s-Eye Barbecue range, Tomato Salsa, and Soy Sauce range, to the UAE’s foodservice channel through Bidfood’s Sales, Marketing, and Operations forces.
The latter comes as an evident undertaking for Bidfood UAE, who together with Kraft Heinz, will be able to offer a complete culinary solution to F&B stakeholders from full-service and quick-service restaurants, to cafés and hotels, ultimately improving their menu offerings and elevating end-consumers’ food experience altogether.
“We couldn’t be happier to partner with one of the most distinguished food brands in the world; Kraft Heinz was able to achieve, and deservingly so, a global community around its brand built on excellence in quality. Kraft Heinz products truly became an essential item on every table around the world. Together, Bidfood UAE and Kraft Heinz will embark on an exciting culinary journey founded on vigorous sales tactics that will drive Kraft Heinz’s products into the UAE’s foodservice channels – we are ready, willing, and able,” says Bidfood ME’s Chief Commercial Officer Wael Al Jamil.
Adding to Al Jamil’s statement on the fellowship, Kraft Heinz Head of Foodservice Middle East and Africa, Deborshi Sarkar, says: “Bidfood UAE’s presence is prevalent in the local foodservice industry and it’s celebrated for its superior standing in the UAE. Through the company’s powerful network, expertise in the industry and diligent team, we at Kraft Heinz are certain we’ll be able to significantly increase distribution and presence across the UAE while adding value to every menu around the country in tandem with Bidfood UAE’s extensive range of high-grade products.”
