Established in 2005, DMCC subsidiary DGCX is now the largest, most diversified commodity derivatives exchange in the Middle East. As a strategic government initiative, it provides all the appropriate physical, market, financial infrastructure and services to enhance your trade flows.
DSAM is a joint venture between a division of DMCC and Shariah Capital to develop Shariah-compliant commodity-focused investments. Its initial product is an exclusive series of transparent hedge funds registered on the Al Safi Trust platform and marketed under the DSAM Kauthar brand.
DMCC serves the entire gold value chain, from research and refining to trading and investing. Until a decade or so ago, Dubai’s nickname as the City of Gold was due to its historic Gold Souk. But since DMCC began investing in world-class infrastructure and services, the volume of gold traded in Dubai has been rising. It now accounts for around 25% of global trade, most of it within our Free Zone.
No other gold centre in the world offers such a complementary industry cluster effect. Innovations include: the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX), DMCC Tradeflow, a trade finance product; regional gold options trading; a Shariah-compliant hedge fund product; and the Dubai Good Delivery Standard, the only international standard for 1kg gold bars of .995 purity.
As part of our ongoing commitment to provide the most innovative infrastructure for our members in the gold and precious metals sector, the DMCC vault provides safe, secure vaulting facilities that you can trust implicitly.
Certified for security, quality and responsible stewardship
Diamonds have long played an illustrious role in Dubai’s heritage as a gateway for global trade. Today DMCC is committed to setting the standard for the secure diamond trading in line with the highest quality standards. Our investments in world-class infrastructure and services include the government-backed Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE), DDE Vault and commitment to the Kimberley Process.
Trade through the DDE has rapidly expanded by building on strong connections with producers in Africa, cutting centres in Asia and consumers in Europe, the US and China. Consequently, our members and global trading partners can trade with complete confidence while accessing new markets.
The Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE) is a unique platform that gives you access to a trusted framework for all aspects of diamond trading. As the region’s only trading exchange for diamonds and coloured stones, it is home to some of the world’s most renowned jewellery manufacturers, retailers and traders.
The DDE vault is a state of the art storage facility giving you access to short and long term storage of diamonds, gold, designer jewellery and other precious items. Adhering to the highest global security standards, you can deposit or withdraw goods using a fully automated robotic system in comfort and privacy, at your convenience.
The UAE is the world’s largest re-exporter of tea with a 60% share of the global market. Since the world’s major tea plantations were established in India and Sri Lanka in the early 1900s, Dubai has been a key international gateway for the trade. Its strategic location midway between the tea producers and tea consumers was a natural advantage. In 2013, the total volume of tea traded through Dubai increased to 129 thousand tonnes (US$ 463 million), representing a jump of 34% on trade in 2012. As a tea trade facilitator, we continue to invest in the innovative infrastructure, business services and expertise to help you capitalise on the flow of tea passing through the region.
A dedicated facility combining warehousing, blending and packaging, our tea centre provides comprehensive facilities and convenient solutions for traders who want to maintain a stock for importers in the Middle East and adjacent regions. We process teas from 13 different countries and facilitate the trade of tea to international buyers worldwide.
Developing major new supply chains from Dubai
The Middle East’s love of coffee has long been central to its history and culture of warm hospitality. Today, DMCC is driving a major initiative to position Dubai at the heart of the world’s leading coffee supply chains. Building on the region’s historic trade links, we have launched a series of ambitious developments to expand Dubai’s resources, expertise and influence in the world of coffee.
Our state-of-the-art DMCC Coffee Centre will offer world-class infrastructure and services for green bean storage, processing and delivery of coffee to precise specifications. Bringing fully dedicated, temperature controlled coffee storage to the Middle East region for the first time, it will benefit a wide range of stakeholders including coffee farmers, exporters, traders, roasters and retailers.
By connecting growers and exporters with global markets, the DMCC Coffee Centre will create infinite new trading opportunities. In 2016, for example, DMCC signed a major agreement with Yunnan State Farms – which produces 90% of all coffee grown in China – and its trading partner Mega Capital Halal Group. Enabling the trade and processing of green coffee in Dubai will be pivotal to the operation, opening a major new trade route to bring China’s coffee to the world.
Enabling the global trade in pearls
Long associated with power and purity, pearls have been traded in Dubai since the 7th century. Following rapid growth in the past decade, the DMCC Pearl Exchange has become firmly established as an authoritative international body for promoting trade in a wide variety of natural and cultured pearls from around the world. Operating as an independent platform, it offers you all the convenience of trading pearls from a globally centralised location without any of the formalities or administration involved in setting up a local company.
This initiative was created to stimulate trade in pearls in Dubai, with recent auctions attracting over 100 traders from 20 countries. The first tender of pearls cultured and cultivated in the UAE was held at Almas Tower with pearls from RAK Pearls, the UAE’s only commercial pearl farm.
How the spice trade changed the world
In the early days, the spice trade was the world’s biggest industry; it established and destroyed empires, led to the discovery of new continents and in many ways helped lay the foundation for the modern world. It was its rarity that held up its value, making it one of the most precious commodities of its time.
Today, spice trade is still a key industry, mostly due to a vast use throughout the world. Demand is consistently high, allowing the commodity to maintain its notable position in the market. DMCC foresees the possibilities this trade can bring by making spices more accessible to the world.
A flourishing marketplace for agricultural goods
Demand for significant food imports in the Gulf region alongside local production has created the natural conditions for a strong import and re-export trade and collaborative enterprise in agro commodities. With growing awareness of global food security issues, agro goods occupy an increasingly strategic role in DMCC’s commodities mix.
Our trade covers a broad range of food products as diverse as coffee, cocoa and grains to soya, sugar and spices. From specialist products to everyday staples, we have established a centralised marketplace providing net importers with produce and enabling net exporters to expand their global reach.
Established in 2012, DMCC Tradeflow gives you the flexibility and innovative trade finance options to safeguard the value of your stored stock.

We are dedicated to the growth of Dubai as a global centre for trade in agro commodities.

Equipped with this knowledge, you can therefore take advantage of highly accurate top-level insights into regional trade flow.
With the UAE acting as a key food supplier for the region and other global markets, the DMCC Food Trade Group was formed to address key challenges and help its members to develop and grow their food trade business.
