Dubai International Chamber facilitates expansion of Zimbabwean agriculture company Nhimbe in Dubai

Dubai International Chamber has facilitated the expansion of Nhimbe Fresh Exports, one of Zimbabwe’s largest vegetable and fruit exporters.

Zimbabwe-based Nhimbe is one of Africa’s premier exporters of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and peas.

Nhimbe predominantly exports to the United States and Europe and has recently entered the Dubai market.

The company currently exports strawberries to Dubai and is scaling production with the support of Dubai International Chamber to boost the visibility of its products while also benefiting from Dubai’s strategic location to expand to the Far East market.

Omar Khan, Executive Director, International Offices, Dubai International Chamber said that apart from helping local businesses expand to international markets, Dubai International Chamber also facilitates foreign direct investment (FDI) from key markets of strategic importance to the emirate.

“We are pleased to have supported Zimbabwe-based firm Nhimbe Fresh Exports with their global expansion plans into Dubai and beyond,” he added.

Dr Edwin Moyo, Chairman of Nhimbe Fresh Exports, said that the company’s choice of emirate of Dubai is based on its popularity, both as a tourist and financial center.

Providing funding partners and logistics, Dubai International Chamber enables foreign firms such as Nhimbe to leverage Dubai’s extensive land, sea and air logistics to open up new trade routes across the MENA region and beyond.

Nhimbe’s business expansion into the emirate supports Dubai’s vision to increase foreign trade from Dhs1.4 trillion to Dhs2 trillion between 2021 and 2026.

Dubai is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, offering a highly diverse and competitive business environment with endless sector opportunities. The city grants ample opportunities to businesses to grow and expand in the region and beyond. The emirate has become a preferred trade hub and gateway for firms from around the world to access emerging markets.
