Beginning life as a modest startup in 2007, Dubai-based BMB – part of F&B conglomerate Agthia Group – today exports products such as Mediterranean sweets to more than 23 countries globally.

“Being a UAE-based company ourselves, we are proud to be associated with the homegrown BMB and are quite excited by this new mission,” commented Lal Arakulath, CEO, Kreol Group.

Mohamad Khachab, Senior Vice President of BMB, added: “We are committed to expanding into travel retail with Kreol Group’s experience in this industry guiding the way forward. We have an amazing range of products which are ideal for travellers.”
