The origins of Fresh Express started in 1974 as a humble family owned and run Mediterranean restaurant in Abu Dhabi. By 1988, the Emirate of Abu Dhabi was growing rapidly. The Vouyoukas family saw this as an opportunity and using their extensive knowledge of seafood and network of best suppliers; the company began to supply local seafood to the Emirate's hospitality sector.
The family vision was to expand the operations and in 1994, the company started the importation and worldwide sourcing of fresh produce and gourmet food items. The success of this and the rapid growth of the hospitality sector elsewhere in the UAE; made it logical to start operation in Dubai in 1997.
Today, Fresh Express is recognized as one of the leading distributors in the luxury food business within the Gulf Region. However, none of what we have achieved would have been possible without our history and passion for food.
