BMMI is a major distributor and wholesaler of leading international food and household goods brands in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the State of Qatar.

BMMI specialises in the distribution, wholesale and retail of food and household goods. The Group represents a leading portfolio of renowned global brands in confectionery, packaged and canned food, toiletries, fragrances, cosmetics, tobacco and other fast-moving consumer goods.

BMMI’s extensive experience as a wholesaler and distributor of food and other consumables can be traced back to its early days when the company was known as Gray Mackenzie (see Group History).

Today, BMMI is one of the top four wholesalers and distributors in Bahrain, with an estimated 20 per cent share of the market. The Group has established a reputation for ethical trading, professionalism and customer service.

The Group’s strategy is to build and maintain a brand portfolio that focuses on quality rather than quantity. Strict selection criteria include brand innovation, and the ability to fill a clearly identified gap in the market.

BMMI represents a number of leading international agencies and household brands in Bahrain, including MARS, Red Bull, American Garden, Storck, Colgate, Henkel, Yardley, Japan Tobacco, Crème 21, Bubchen and Jergen’s.

In 2003, BMMI acquired a 50 per cent stake and day-to-day management control of ZAD Marketing and Distribution, a long-established food and household goods wholesaler and distributor in the State of Qatar.

ZAD represents a number of leading international agencies and household brands in Qatar, including Hershey’s, Storck, Paseo, Banana Boat, McBride, Himalaya, Palmer’s, Kent, Trim, Original Addition, American Garden and Chubs.
