Best Products To Import From Dubai
Who wouldn’t love to have a piece of Dubai in their home? The exotic and distant world that people adore can be at their doorstep with a few online clicks and the right provider that has quality and competitive offers and you could become that partner.
To begin with it, you’ll be needing small business financing for the first steps of a business that will bring costs that you’ll have to take into account. From a website to your first shipment, to red tape and insurances.
No business is easy but becoming a provider or Middle Eastern goods can be a very lucrative and enriching way to make a living. And if you don’t know where to start, take a look at these options.
One of the earth's riches gifts are fruit and Dubai seems to have a particular one that enchant palates: date fruits. The offer is vast so you can get inspired with places like Bateel, a premium offer of organic dates with a little extra, like pistachios or hazelnuts. Or you could think about going into business with a company like Al Barakah Date Factory, that offers a variety of date fruit in different presentations, mostly to cook and bake, and also syrup, sugar and paste. You could even become the import-export person to go to for dates.
The world is mad for the smell of the Middle East and agarwood chips, incense and Oudh would attract a lot of curious and recurrent consumers. You would just have to be careful not to break any laws since the Aquilaria tree, the raw source of this product, is in endangered species watch. Look for a partner that fulfills all requirements to protect and commercialize these products and you can go on your merry way.
Very much like Oudh, attars could be a great way to take Dubai to the world since it’s all about smell and the oils with different scents can be used to perfume a person or a place, in aromatherapy or even, let’s face it, as decoration. You would just have to find yourself a niche and a regular provider and then you can build your attar empire.
From pashminas to rugs, there’s a big demand for textiles from the middle east. Now, bear in mind that none of this is a cheap product and that there are many copies, or reinterpretations, out there that could eat up your market. You just have to focus directly on the quality and authenticity, so your consumers decide to buy from you and not someone else.
Sure, coffee exists everywhere, you can buy it in the store or online, but real Arabica has no comparison. This is one of the riches that you can harness from the land but you have to be extra careful to have a supply chain with ethical conditions and fair prices for the farmers. You can complement your offer with traditional coffee pots to make it a whole experience. You can even teach classes on tasting and preparing coffee. Why not give it a go?
There is a theme here, right? Because who doesn’t love the smell of cinnamon, cardamom or saffron. In the Spice Souk you can buy anything and everything for the right price and transform it into something attractive to buyers around the world. It could be a different packaging or blends. Your creativity is the limit.
A chocolate in the shape of a camel, it’s right there in the name but the magic of this product is the quality. It is manufactured by Al Nassma with five varieties, from whole milk to macadamia enriched. This product can be taken as a novelty in other countries and, mixed with the flavor, it could become an amazing business.
Even though this last one is a private company, you could make special deals with it to become its distributor. The idea is that you can take all those beloved products to new places and fulfill a necessity that is latent in every country and show the world what a rich and full land Dubai has. Are you ready to become a major player?
