Not-so-guilty pleasure

All over the world, consumers are actively transitioning to healthier foods and beverages.

Rejecting products with artificial ingredients, sugar and salt, they are shifting their preference to organic, natural and holistic ingredients, while still looking for novel recipes, bold and exotic tastes. Rich in several vitamins, minerals, and fiber, dates are now a staple in every household. Take full advantage of this trend.

At Yummex, you can explore the Global Date Market and connect with global and local palm date producers and manufacturers of date sweets and snacks.
