DTTC launches facility for global tea industry



DUBAI: The Dubai Tea Trading Centre (DTTC), a division of the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), unveiled on Sunday its new centralised tea storage, blending and value addition services as part of its expansion plans to accommodate the growing activities of the centre.

The new facility was inaugurated by Jamal Majid Bin Thaniah; Executive Vice Chairman, DP World and Group CEO, Ports Customs World; and Salma Ali Saif Bin Hareb Chief Executive Officer -- Economic Zones World. The 23,731 square metre facility in Jebel Ali Free Zone also includes office space for regional and international tea companies.

DTTC's new facility offers services across the entire value chain of the tea industry ranging from storage, tea tasting, blending, packaging as well as networking opportunities leading to increased trade.

The new facility also provides dedicated individual storage space, free storage for a limited period of time, and temperature-controlled blending and packing facilities for a wide range of teas under one roof. "Tea is a truly global commodity -- consumed among a wide array of peoples and cultures. It is fitting that Dubai, with its geographic advantage and world-class infrastructure, is perfectly placed to become an important hub for international tea trade," DMCC, Executive Chairman, Ahmed Bin Sulayem said.
