DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

In an ever-changing world, change is the only constant factor. Macroeconomic conditions change, so does the business cycle and the ceaselessly changing tastes & preferences of our consumers, translating into a material and continual impact on consumer demand patterns.

As a result, we need to constantly adapt and stay ahead of the curve in order to deliver the best solutions for our customers. We promote a culture that is proactive and entrepreneurial rather than reactive and bureaucratic. Our people and business models are adaptable and flexible, which in turn make our operations agile and responsive.

Regardless of the nature of market dynamics, our competitive position has become stronger every year, resulting in an increasing market share. This unwavering forward momentum is attributable to our depth of local knowledge, early identification of opportunities, independent decision making by our self-directed teams and our uncompromising pursuit for quality service with speed.

Year after year, we have constantly listened to our customers and transformed to support their needs. Every team has its own success story, but the common thread that runs across them all is ‘adaptation’. The true Spirit of Bustan Khaleeji is in the transparency of relationship with our valued consumers and business partners and our willingness to adapt to the changing business environment.

Ocean Spray

Ocean Spray was formed in 1930, in Hanson, Massachusetts, USA by three cranberry growers who wanted to expand their market. They began by coming up with new and innovative products made from cranberries. Since then, the Ocean Spray cooperative has grown to more than 700 grower families all across North America. The cooperative’s first product was jellied cranberry sauce, followed by original Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail hitting the shelves in the early 1930s, beginning a long tradition of quality, innovation, and success. Its current range of products comprises of juices & drinks, Craisins® dried cranberries, sauces, fresh fruit and innovative products such as mocktails, PACt® cranberry extract water and fruit infusions.

Steviana

Steviana is a calorie-free, all natural alternative to sugar, which is derived from the stevia plant - a small shrub grown largely in Latin America that has been used for centuries by the indigenous population to sweeten their food and drink. It doesn’t contain Aspartame or Saccharin. The taste of tea or coffee remains unchanged as it doesn’t give an aftertaste of bitterness like the other sweeteners. It is a popular choice as an ingredient in the preparation of sweets and desserts as it handles high temperatures up to 200 degree Celsius. Not only is Steviana calorie free and so can play a great role in weight loss, but it is also suitable for diabetics as it doesn't affect blood glucose levels. BK is distributing Steviana’s various pack sizes in Kuwait.
