A second-generation family business established in the UAE in 1982, Kibsons provides its customers with the highest quality fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and groceries exactly when they need them, at the most competitive prices available.
Kibsons’ goal has always been to provide products that the company’s staff and employees would be more than happy to take home to their own families. Its mantra underlines this: ‘If it is good enough for our families, it is good enough to share with the rest of the UAE’.
To achieve this objective, Kibsons has spent years building great relationships with its growers and suppliers worldwide, supplying retailers and the wholesale market with extraordinary service in a highly competitive marketplace. However, with one eye always on the future, in 2017, the company decided it wanted to create something more personalised, special and convenient, direct to consumers. This was the start of its celebrated Home Delivery business.

Making People Happy Through Food
Committed to going the extra mile for its customers, Kibsons also reacts to currents demands and situations, such as with its coffee mornings and box challenges.
Coffee Mornings with Kibsons
The virtual coffee mornings with Kibsons were launched last year during lockdown, and it turned out to be a great way to communicate with some of the company’s loyal customers and keep them up-to-date with all of the latest news and product offerings. Customers also had the opportunity to enjoy close interaction with Halima Jumani – a mother, entrepreneur and one of the key personalities behind Kibsons as a business.

Kibsons’ Box Challenges
The Mystery Box Challenge was launched during Ramadan for all culinary aficionados; in fact, everyone who is fond of cooking. Participants were asked to submit their entry by emailing Kibsons with their details, along with their preferred option of vegan or non-vegan boxes. Once shortlisted, the 100 lucky applicants were sent the mystery boxes and asked to create meals using the ingredients provided – they were allowed two pantry items from their end as well. Then, they were encouraged to share their recipes on social media, using the hashtag #KibsonsMysteryBoxChallenge and the winners will be chosen based on their cooking and presentation skills. This was another way to engage with families and encourage them to participate in fun challenges that boost their motivation and hone their cooking skills.
