Supply Management


Bridging the gap between producers and consumers whilst matching specific qualities and requirements, coupled with the ability to deliver goods in exactly the right place at exactly the right time, is the key to successfully trading agricultural commodities.

We cover all areas of the kingdom, supplying on a daily basis farmers and feed plants. It is increasingly becoming harder to judge what customers want but our ability to anticipate and satisfy each customer’s specific requirements stems from our team of professionals each of them having some specific skill all of which culminates to CUSTOMER SATISFACTION.





Our guaranteed Service


 Special attention is paid to the selection and quality control of all commodities shipped, from origin to final destination. Each shipment is systematically sampled by our team at port of discharge.

Sets of samples are drawn by us uniformly and systematically, concurrently with loading and discharging, at the nearest and best practicable point to the vessel in accordance with the method laid down by GAFTA. One set of samples is sent to the laboratory where it is well mixed and reduced to constitute one average sample of the total shipped quantity for determination of the quality.
 
No goods are sold unless all results meet our stringent criteria for 1st class corn and soy meal.

We continually inform our customers of any market developments, expected shipments and any other useful information. We continually aim to meet and exceed customer requirements.


QUALITY MAINTENANCE AND CONTROL


Grain can be stored for several years, providing proper conditions exist, with little or no detectable loss of quality. Under improper conditions, however, grain can begin to spoil within a few hours. Grain spoilage is the result of bacteria and fungi using grain nutrients for growth and reproductive process.

These microorganisms can produce heat during growth that can increase the temperature of stored grain. The result can be HEAT DAMAGE that renders the grain unfit for human consumption or even animal feed. The major influences on the growth of these microorganisms in grain include: moisture, temperature, oxygen supply, condition of grain, storage time, initial infestation and the amount of foreign material.

To reduce the effect of the last factor the facility is equipped with the only filtering system (DUST CLEANER) in the kingdom, it used for all commodities entering and leaving our facility.

As the name implies it reduces considerably the amount of dust and foreign material present in the commodities.
 
Other methods are also employed to reduce the effect of other factors, these methods include efficient aeration system, grain turning techniques and physical checks looking for bad order and any color change in the grain.

Our enthusiasm and willingness to always do a better job is the distinguishing factor between our competitors and us. For years Hammoudeh Grain has built very successful relations with farmers and has through increased market knowledge been able to meet specific customer needs.

We are continually looking for new ideas, new products and new customers; we set the standard for efficiency, quality, service and most importantly customer satisfaction.
