MMI and Dubai has a partnership spanning over 100 years.
From a humble Dubai Creekside shipping agent to one of the world’s leading independent beverage distributors; Maritime and Mercantile International’s (MMI) early origins stretch back to 1862 when Gray Paul & Co first began trading in the region from Basra in Iraq, later becoming Gray Mackenzie & Co as part of Inchcape Shipping Group.
MMI became a subsidiary of the prestigious Emirates Airline Group in 2000.
MMI specialises in beverage sales, marketing, retailing and distribution. Its market leading experience and expertise give a unique understanding and respect for the cultural differences and common interests of the communities in which it operates. These qualities help to connect with customers and clients at every touch point in increasingly smart, accessible and relevant ways.
Today MMI is the number one beverage supplier to hotels, restaurants and bars in the UAE and Oman and one of the world’s leading beverage distribution companies in emerging markets.
MMI has successfully expanded its import/wholesale network to encompass over 40 countries across the Middle East, Africa, Indian Ocean and Asia, and continues to drive its international market strategy for future growth.
