South African shop in the UAE: #RainbowFriday no.28

October 14, 2016

Welcome back to your 28th edition of our #RainbowFriday blog. This week we’re heading back to the UAE to check in on a South African shop called SA WAY Trading.

By the last count (cited six years ago in IOL), there were up to 100 000 South Africans living in the UAE. Though the saffa community in this region tends to be rather fluid, and many come and go according to job opportunities – there certainly are a lot of expats from our country living in the UAE.

And since the culture differs so greatly from the rainbow nation, you’ll undoubtedly want a bit of South African spice to add to your Arabian delicacies.

Shop of the week: SA WAY General Trading

According to their site, SA WAY’s aim is to bring the joy of life to each home in the UAE and GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries, which includes Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait – by providing South African Food products, African memorabilia and South African merchandise to the region.

But the company is not only a provider of South African goods, they also offer a host of supplementary services to their customers.

You can look to SA WAY to provide you with virtually anything your little saffa heart desires in the UAE and GCC.
