29 May 2024

DP World and Maalexi, a UAE-based risk management platform for SME agri-businesses, have joined forces to enhance food security in the Gulf by providing greater access to a diverse range of food products at Jebel Ali Port. This strategic collaboration will enable Maalexi to utilize DP World's global network and state-of-the-art temperature-controlled storage facilities at Jebel Ali Port, facilitating quicker delivery times and expanded product offerings. Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO and Managing Director of DP World GCC, emphasized the commitment to revolutionizing food distribution, while Maalexi's Co-founder and CEO, Dr. Azam Pasha, highlighted the benefits for SME buyers and sellers in the GCC agricultural market through enhanced visibility and streamlined procurement processes. This partnership follows DP World's recent groundbreaking for its new $150 million Agri Terminals facility at Jebel Ali Port and underscores both companies' dedication to bolstering food security in a region heavily reliant on food imports.
