Though the foodservice space was impacted due to the impact of the pandemic, retail sales continued to record healthy growth in the Middle East. Not only were foodservice consumption occasions moving into people’s homes, but coffee drinking at home also benefited from many consumers working remotely. Coffee drinkers were looking to create a “café-style experience” in their home office. This opportunity has paved the way for retail brands like Bevarabia, one of the leading provider of innovative and customized solutions for Coffee, Equipment, and all forms of cafe-style beverages, to expand its operations across Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
How Bevarabia used technology to drive efficiency
Vivek Hans founded Bevarabia with a single retail outlet at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh in 2011. Today, Bevarabia has evolved as an integrated beverage platform for coffee distribution. The brand is among the leading producer and distributor of speciality coffee and niche beverage products in the UAE and KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). It is the distributor for recognized brands, such as Astoria, Golden Brasil, Arkadia, Giffard, Mill City Roasters, BelliNo, Premier’s Tea. Operating their coffee roastery under the brand “Kava Noir”, coffee is the heart of the business. Bevarabia currently operates three outlets in Riyadh, with one being under its own brand Kava Noir and progressing to expand in 2021.
