Al Maya Launches In-store Promotion of Pinoy Products

Al Maya Group is a leading company engaged in food and non-food products distribution, lifestyle retail, and supermarkets. With headquarters in the UAE, it has branches all over the country — as well as in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, India, and the United Kingdom.

The Director of Al Maya Group, Kamal Vachani, noted that Philippine products are popular not just among Filipinos, but among other nationalities, too. Hence, the company launched the event, recognizing Filipinos as leading customers, the Dubai PR Network reported.

In turn, Vice Minister Macatoman thanked the company for promoting Philippine goods in its supermarkets. He also mentioned that more Pinoy products would be brought into the UAE, thanks to the successful meeting of 27 Philippine companies that are currently in the country.

The group, which consists of representatives from food and personal care industries, aims to introduce more Philippine goods — particularly halal products — into the GCC markets.

For his part, Consul General Cortes thanked Al Maya Group for supporting Philippine products. Likewise, he also thanked the company for employing overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in its supermarkets and distribution facilities across the UAE and the GCC.
