Financing the World Food Program

All Projects

Participating in the World Food Program

The World Food Programme (WFP)* is without parallel in delivering humanitarian aid, food assistance in both changing and ultimately saving lives.

Globally, governments have committed to achieve three fundamental imperatives by 2030:
  • End Hunger
  • Achieve Food Security
  • Improve nutrition for everybody
As in today’s age it is a lamentable fact that still one in nine people worldwide remain hungry within insufficient access to foods.  In 2019, WFP assisted over 97 million people in over 88 countries and daily operates 5600 truckes, 30 ships and nearly 100 planes – all mobilizing food and assistance to those most in need.

We have sought to join that effort in financing and supplying to a number of mills who are regular suppliers to the programme. We originate high quality grains reliably and cost effectively before providing financing support to mills in regions, who are then able to provide the WFP with many of its nutritional needs.

Amman Grand Flour Mills, is one such mill. AGFM is a family owned complex of wheat milling plants, supplying the Jordanian market since 1964, and is located in Marka, Jordan. It is a family business with a long standing presence in the region, aided by a team of highly experienced managers. Our team have a relationship with the company and its owners that dates back over 30 years.

AGFM produces flour, semolina and bran in different grades, and beyond supplying the WFP, caters primarily to bakeries in bulk loads, and to retail markets for example on special holidays (Ramadan, Easter, Christmas). Specifically within the WFP, they are supplying the Syrian refugee camp at Zaatari in Jordan.

In the exciting metropolis of Dubai, a center of international trade and charity, our commodities trading company is at the forefront of promoting important programs such as the World Food Program (WFP). We are essential in ensuring that food aid reaches those in need all around the world because of our unwavering focus on funding grain supplies and wheat milling activities. At the heart of our operations lies a commitment to food aid investments that transcend mere profit-making. We understand the urgency of addressing hunger and food insecurity, which is why we channel our resources into supporting Jordan wheat mills, such as the esteemed Amman Grand Flour Mills, to facilitate the production and supply of essential grain products.

Our strategic investments in grain milling and commodity trading company in Dubai are not merely business endeavors; they are humanitarian aid investments aimed at bolstering food security and alleviating hunger. By collaborating with mills like AGFM, we contribute to the WFP’s mission of ending hunger, achieving food security, and improving nutrition for all by 2030.

Through our partnerships and initiatives, we ensure that quality wheat products are readily available not only for local consumption but also for distribution to regions in need through the World Food Programme. Our support extends beyond financial backing; it encompasses a deep-seated commitment to humanitarian aid, reflected in our efforts to obtain ISO certifications for quality management and food safety.

With its investments in grain milling and support for the World Food Programme, our company stands out as a light of hope amid the dynamic trading scene of Dubai, promoting good change. By working together, we are creating a better, more nourished world for future generations rather than merely exchanging goods. Come along as we work to finance, one grain at a time, the future of humanitarian aid and food security.


Investing made with surgical precision

Wheat products are a cornerstone of food security for Jordan, and a basic food in general. As such, it enjoys constant demand. Jordan’s consumption has been steadily growing. Wheat imports are at 1 million tons, whereas aid programs are estimated at a further 120,000 tons. As the market for wheat products expands, so must a wheat mill to keep ahead of new opportunities.We have worked with AGFM to provide for and support and number of strategic initiatives to continue their ability to provide for local needs, including:
  • Developing and actively pursue flour tenders to distressed areas through World Food Programs and others, with the aim of becoming major suppliers in this field. WFP aid to Syria amounted to 124,000 tons of flour in 2020, up from 109,000 tons in 2019, whereas aid to Yemen was 720,000 tons in 2020.
  • Purchasing better quality wheat than provided locally, (from our Ukraine office), to produce higher quality specialty products commanding higher premiums
  • Completion of a 3rdmilling line (under construction), as we are already producing at capacity
  • Capitalizing on our bulk loading capabilities by supplying clients with free-flowing flour storage, reducing packing/loading/unloading costs considerably. This frees up premium storage space on-site, and gain/retain clients through better servicing
  • Obtain ISO 9001 and 22000 certifications for quality management and food safety
