Talabat exports “Made in Qatar” products to Kuwait

Talabat Qatar, the region’s leading food delivery and q-commerce app, is proud to announce that Made in Qatar products from its iconic ‘974’ collection are now available on talabat mart in Kuwait. These products include major brands such as Batato’s, Raw’a Juice, Doha Dates, QFM flour, Qatar Pafki, among others.

Initially these products were sold successfully through talabat mart, talabat’s q-commerce delivery only concept, where customers can receive their groceries to their doorstep in 30 minutes or less.

Now, in collaboration with Qatar Logistics, talabat is helping to grow local Made In Qatar products with the aim of exporting to several of talabat’s other markets. The initiative is expected to significantly increase the exposure of locally produced brands, a commitment talabat has increasingly prioritised in Qatar.

Mohamed Shaaban, Senior Manager from Qatar Logistics said, “As a result of an excellent cooperation between Qatar Logistics and talabat, we are delighted to announce the export of the first local products through talabat in the region. With the strong footprint and capabilities of Qatar Logistics, we were successful in the first export and with our strong association with talabat, we foresee a great opportunity in the growth of local products by catering to a wider market.”

Yolanda Arreguin, General Manager of Wholesome Oasis Food Factory said, “We are proud to begin exporting “Batato’s” with talabat as a strategic partner. As a 100% Qatari company, we are compelled to produce high quality potato chips and snacks, and are the first company in the region to cook our chips in 100% heart healthy sunflower oil at prices accessible to all.”

Francisco De Sousa, MD of talabat Qatar said: “we are very proud of ‘Made in Qatar’ brands as they portray the true potential of our country. We continue to believe in our local producers and promote them heavily through our platform. We’ve always believed in the potential of local brands within our regional network, and we are proud that our Kuwaiti customers can now enjoy our locally produced brands.

De Sousa also stressed the importance of leveraging talabat’s scale to play a role in growing locally-produced brands beyond the borders of Qatar:

“Almost none of these products have been exported previously, so this is a significant, heartwarming moment for us.

We have focused significant investments and operations towards ‘Made in Qatar’ brands, to help showcase their quality to the region. As we embark on this memorable journey, we truly believe this is just the very beginning, as we expect to slowly introduce them in other neighbouring markets, too.”

To order Made In Qatar products through talabat mart, customers can download the talabat app on iOS through the App store, and Android through Google Play.
