Dedicated storefront features locally manufactured products for customers to explore
Amazon Saudi Arabia recently launched a ‘Saudi Made’ storefront on Amazon.sa, featuring thousands of local products certified by the ‘Made in Saudi’ (MIS) program.
Aligning with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, the dedicated storefront promotes locally manufactured products to millions of Amazon customers, accelerating the development of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and entrepreneurship in Saudi Arabia.
The launch was announced following the signing of a Co-operation Agreement between Eng. Abdulrahman Althukair, CEO, Saudi Exports Development Authority, and Abdo Chlala, Country Manager, Amazon Saudi Arabia, in the presence of HE Bandar Bin Ibrahim Alkhorayef, Minister of Industry and Mineral Resources, Saudi Arabia.
The signing ceremony was held at the ‘Made in Saudi’ Exhibition 2023, an annual event that aims to bring Saudi products closer to consumers and businesses.
Amazon’s new ‘Saudi Made’ store is a curation of thousands of locally manufactured products across a range of categories including health and personal care, grocery, home care, baby care, and beauty, offering a wide selection to customers, a press communique stated.
“Our partnership with Amazon bolsters our commitment to enabling more brands to expand their local manufacturing, while positioning Saudi products and services as the preferred choice for domestic and international consumers,” stressed HE Engr Althukair.
“Launching the Saudi Made store is the first step towards a long-term partnership with Saudi Exports that reiterates our commitment to invest in local businesses and SMBs, providing them with the tools and services they need to succeed,” asserted Chlala.
Since the launch of Amazon.sa in 2020, the company has continued to invest in Saudi Arabia, launching services and tools to support local businesses. The company has been coordinating with Monsha’at, Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Small and Medium Enterprises, to empower this segment of the economy, with an aim to host 40,000 Saudi sellers by 2025 on Amazon.sa, the press note concluded.
