Dubai is known to be the country that is importing most of its goods available in the supermarkets. On the one side, it is important for many expats living there to have the choice of international brand available. So shops, malls and online sales will provide almost anything you would desire from your home countries. As this part of the market is already saturated, there are small or medium business initiatives that are investing in different ideas. It is not so easy to find them out, but once you do you will definitely fall in love.
One of our favorite discovered local brands is Farmbox. Although it is importing fruits and vegetables from selected organic family farms in Europe, their approach is direct and local. It represents an increasing trend in all big cities around the world. If you don’t like to buy fruits and vegetables in the super market and you don’t have enough time to go to the green market, as they usually have special opening hours, you are just one of the many facing the similar problem.
