REAL FOOD WITH REAL TASTE AT THE RIGHT PRICE

 

REAL FOOD

We are Alix and Rodolphe, 2 International Frenchies from the Food & Beverages and e-commerce sectors. Late 2016, we started Maison Duffour adventure with the mission to offer a gourmet range of products based on the quality of their ingredients, their availability in the UAE and their price.

Maison Duffour, it's also a team of 12 incredible people, all working super hard to make your life tastier and easier with the best quality products in town!

Maison Duffour is proud to have now more than 1000 gourmets products on the website. You can buy all your premium groceries on Maison Duffour, from the aperitif until the dessert. 

Maison Duffour is unique in the UAE as we control the entire chain: from the food sourcing till the customer’s delivery. We control our product quality, our stocks and our delivery.

You can discover our gourmet products online or directly at our warehouse in Al Quoz Industrial 3. We deliver people's homes 7 days a week everywhere in the UAE.

REAL TASTE

We control the entire logistic chain and source our products directly from the producers.

We do not reference any product until it ticks all boxes of our quality chart. Each product is tasted by the team and a pannel of customers. We only add products that are rated more than 4.5/5 in average. 

All our products are unique and sourced for ourselves only. 

RIGHT PRICE

Given we source our products ourselves, we are able to control our prices with less intermediaries. Thanks to our sourcing, we can offer a range of affordable gourmet products to our customers.

We always believed that everyone should be able to enjoy gourmet food at affordable price in the comfort of their homes.

While a lot of factors impact our prices, we do our best to maintain our prices to what we believe are fair prices. Some factors are out of our control but please reach out to us if you feel there is a price that looks incorrect. 

 

 

 

WE CARE 

At Maison Duffour, we believe change begins with each of us.

With all our baby steps combined we can achieve grand results!

Waste control

Lots of players in the food industry waste and throw away big volume of unpurchased items. At Maison Duffour, we pride ourselves in being a company that achieves near to zero food waste.

  • We control our stocks and order only the quantities that are needed. You might have noticed out of stock items at times - this is due to a very strict policy towards waste in general.
  • If we have any products that are near to the expiry, we will propose them to you at a lower price in our Zero Waste Corner.
  • We collaborate with the UAE Food Bank in order to donate close to expiry products or imperfect fruits and vegetables.
  • Finally, most of the expired products, we use for our own consumption and distribute them amongst the team members.

    Environmental Responsibility

    We all do our best to play our part here! While it's always work in progress, we are happy to start with a few actions on our end.

    • We gift trees to our customers with every order made & offset our products CO2 emissions.
    • We collect jars, boxes and ice bags from your former orders. Our Maison Duffour drivers are pleased to take them back ! If you were not able to give them back, let us know so we can arrange a pick up.
    • We reduce at maximum the number of plastic packaging we use, and maximize the number of products we can serve in simple paper packaging.
    • We use filtered water as a team. We all said bye bye to plastic bottles!

      Thank you for supporting us! We are at your service for many more years to come.

      Your MD Team.
