Sainsbury’s in the second largest supermarket chain in the United Kingdom, with over 1400 outlets across the United Kingdom and nearly 250,000 online orders every week. Sainsbury’s was founded by John James Sainsbury and his wife Mary Ann in London, in 1869 and has since been helping customers live well for less for over 150 years now. The quality, range and provenance of their food sets them apart from other supermarkets in the UK. And it continues to do so. With a focus of constantly improving their quality and standard of products, they are also investing in a three-year programme to upgrade over 3,000 of their own-brand products.

The opportunity for Marakez Trading to be the master distributor for Sainsbury’s - in Qatar, Middle East and North Africa - and working with our strategic leading Qatari supermarket, Al Meera, provides a solid foundation for success by bringing the best products to the market and offering both locals & expats living in Qatar, a greater variety of consumer goods. We look forward to making the most of this partnership and envision steady growth in Qatar, while also looking at the horizon to expand to other parts of the GCC, Middle East and North Africa.
