On 08 July 2022 the Islamic Organization for Food Security and its subsidiary International Islamic Food Processing Association had a fruitful meeting with Mr. Suvra Chakraborty, Director of AMC Overseas. The parties discussed opportunities for cooperation in facilitating trade flows in OIC member states, and agreed on arranging the pilot trade exchanges of sunflower oil and sugar between UAE and Kazakhstan. AMC is a Dubai-based multinational company involved in trading and investments since 1996, primarily in CIS countries.
AMC Overseas has been importing from Ukraine, Russia and other CIS countries such important food commodities as wheat and wheat flour, sunflower oil, green peas, lentils and others. Now that these supplies are unavailable, the company is seeking other potential providers.
Kazakhstan has a large potential for exporting wheat grain and flour, sunflower oil and other food products. AMC Overseas requests the IOFS support for arranging these supplies to UAE and other MENA countries. AMC is also interested in cooperation on developing sustainable logistics routes for intra-OIC food shipments, with the IOFS support in reaching necessary G2G agreements.
