Bateel is a leading brand in the gourmet food segment with an exclusive selection of gourmet chocolates, fresh dates, confectionery and other sweet and savoury gourmet delicacies.
A world-renowned name in the premium confectionery industry, Bateel began with a simple concept – offering a unique range of high quality products to a well-defined market segment in an upscale and elegant retail environment.
Bateel operates its own date groves in Al Ghat, Saudi Arabia, and produces more than 20 varieties of dates of the finest quality, its impressive date selection matched only by the care with which each individual fruit is processed from the date palm to the boutique.
Combining dates with the European art of chocolate and pastry making, Bateel has created a new world of delicacies. Its delicious selection of date truffles, jams, pastries and sparkling drinks has a distinct and authentic appeal that pleases the eye and soothes the palate. Bateel date products are complemented by an exclusive range of traditional gourmet chocolates, sweets, pralines and other delicacies. Like all Bateel products, these delicacies are made from the finest natural ingredients, free of preservatives, with recipes created to satisfy the most demanding connoisseurs.
With headquarters in Saudi Arabia, a regional office in the UAE, operations in 16 countries extending from London to Jakarta and activities that include farming, processing, manufacturing, and premium retailing, Bateel’s success is anchored on a strong production and marketing organization. But its appeal is based on its ability to consistently develop and produce the highest quality products while maintaining a passion for innovation.
Having fully established itself in the gourmet confectionery industry, Bateel introduced its clients to a new concept in casual dining – Café Bateel. Offering a unique range of gourmet foods and beverages, the Café Bateel menu embodies the ancient Umbrian culinary heritage and a rich tradition of Arabian hospitality. Since its launch, Café Bateel has enjoyed the patronage of a select clientele. Their appreciation and loyalty, as well as a growing demand for Bateel products and services, has inspired Café Bateel’s rapid expansion in the last two years.
Today, Café Bateel can be found in exclusive locations including DIFC, Dubai Mall, Festival City, Bur Juman Centre, Media City and Marina Walk. Café Bateel offers delicious gourmet food, excellent coffee and all the stylish comforts that come with the Bateel experience.
We strive to understand customer needs first and then satisfy them. We don’t simply sell, we want to be part of our customers’ lives. Our mission is to maximize customer value through the highest level of retail by leading the industry through passion and dedication for our food.
