Falcon Global General Trading is one of the leading importing companies in the UAE. Strategically located in Dubai, it meets the needs of its wholesale customers such as supermarkets, grocery stores, cafeterias and others in Dubai. In India, the company has begun to distribute to wholesale market. It has started with shipments of oranges and apples and plans to import other varieties by air in future. This way, it is able to supply its customers with these items year-round. Its import markets include the United States, South Africa, Europe, New Zeland and Egypt. “We currently want to import produce from Spain by air, so we are analysing and studying the opportunities. Spanish produce is unique. It’s more expensive, but the quality is what the final consumer demands,” said executive director Shafeek Rahman. The company already imports from Spain by sea, which takes 25 days to get the product to its destination. In addition, Rahman said that in the future it hopes to enter new countries and continents to explore the varieties in fruits and introduce it to both the Middle East and Indian market.
