SAFQAT, an online B2B marketplace, has planned its debut in the UAE market, aiming to make wholesale buying convenient, secure, and transparent.

SAFQAT offers alternative one-on-one interactions with a simplified one-to-many model that strengthens the supplier-buyer relationship. With a single click, suppliers can reach restaurants, caterers, supermarkets, and grocery shops, making this platform a one-stop shop for all business solutions.

With a quick registration process, SAFQAT provides market access to 2000+ active buyers and enables suppliers to access potential buyers worldwide. Unlike similar platforms in the region, SAFQAT stands different by offering commission-free transactions for both buyers and sellers. SAFQAT will also allow members to try and test the products before their final purchase orders, thereby mimicking the advantage of a conventional purchase process.

“Being in the F&B market for several years, we have observed numerous issues that buyers and suppliers face on a day-to-day basis when it comes to supply-chain management. In addition to competitive prices, buyers struggle with finding reliable and trusted suppliers, alternative options, and sourcing new products in the market. As a result, we realized a genuine need for a platform to connect the F&B businesses, and hence the idea for SAFQAT was born two years ago.”

“Those in the F&B market know its volatility as some product costs become higher or even suddenly available. Therefore, we aim to provide a quick, transparent, fully digitized buying and selling experience to ensure optimal supply-chain management in good and bad times,” Mr. Al Shanqiti.

The platform uses best-in-class technology, which ensures reliable communication between partners. With round-the-clock support, transparent order tracking, and AI-driven logistics to innovate financing, SAFQAT will be a hub of F&B suppliers open for 365 days 24×7 for potential buyers.
