The Bateel story starts in Al Ghat, a town in Central Arabia, favoured by nature with sweet water, rich soil and a climate ideal for date production. Here is where Bateel’s premium dates were first nurtured and the idea of gourmet dates was born. The evolution to gourmet food production happened over the years, first by combining dates with gourmet chocolate, then by fusing dates with other delicacies, and adding an extensive range of savoury fine food. This bold an pioneering achievement provided Bateel with a valuable launching pad to expand into complementary sectors in the gourmet food industry. Over the years, Bateel has perfected its integrated production assets and network of luxurious boutiques, artisanal bakeries and premium cafés.
