‘Enjoy Your Kitchen’

Main Photo

In today’s fiercely competitive foodservice sector, new innovative technologies and evolving eating patterns demand that operators take their businesses to a new level. It’s a challenging scenario, and to achieve it many catering organisations turn to industry market leader Mareno which, part of the Ali SpA Group, has been serving the global marketplace since 1922.


Offering the perfect blend of sophisticated Italian design and powerful performance, Mareno is renowned for providing the ultimate cooking experience. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that the brand is now the preferred choice for discerning restaurants, cafes, bakeries and hotels throughout the MENA region. “We have been serving the region for many years,” explains Michele Romano, Brand Manager at Mareno, “from Morocco across to Tunisia and down into the Gulf – the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are perhaps our biggest markets in this part of the world.”


Second Paragraph

When asked how Mareno differentiates itself in such a competitive marketplace, Michele has no hesitation in responding: “We provide more comprehensive services. It’s not just a ‘modular solution’, but a complete package, from start to finish. We want our customers to really enjoy their kitchens, so we work hand-in-hand with them to create the perfect solution, both in terms of practicality and aesthetics. The latter is particularly important for customers who feature ‘living cooking’, for diners not only watch the chef working; they look at the equipment too. That’s why we have designed a range of aesthetically pleasing features, including coloured blocks on the bottom of the ranges, which have proven to be very popular.”

Third Paragraph

Mareno is known for its innovation, with a product portfolio that includes high efficiency open burners, precise adjustable power settings, pasta cookers complete with water sensor to prevent dry start, and new style fryer tanks with extended cool zones. So what’s next from Mareno? “We will be launching a new electronic line at the end of the year,” says Michele. “It will feature touchscreen control, much like an iPhone, and will cook in a very precise way. Our new motto is ‘Enjoy Your Kitchen’ and this new product line will allow chefs to do just that!”

Last Paragraph

The company’s success in the UAE has been fuelled by its partnership with Al Halabi, as Michele explains: “Mareno has been working with Al Halabi for more than 15 years; from the very beginning it was an important relationship for us, and it has developed into a situation where they are now the exclusive supplier for our products throughout the UAE. We are very happy with this because Al Halabi is not just ‘another’ supplier. Instead, it offers a full 360o service – attention to detail is exceptional and nothing is ever left to chance. And their new showrooms – I recently visited the one in Sharjah – are simply outstanding.”

We can’t argue with that!
