Universa Blockchain and Al Khaleej Sugar will use the platform’s services to mark up contract units of up to an initial 100,000 tons of raw sugar. The electronic permissions for digital sugar contracts issued by the DMCC Tradeflow trading platform will be attached to the reserve sugar stocks at approved storage facilities across Dubai.

Strong wound

Jamal Al Ghurair, Managing Director and Chairman of Al Khaleej Sugar, said: “The sugar trade has adopted traditional methods until recently, but the DigitalSugar platform is well equipped to change this traditional pattern. Through Universa’s blockchain technology and DMCC’s vast experience in commodity trading, the platform will undoubtedly give a strong momentum to the sugar trade in Dubai.

Alexander Borodovic, Founder and CEO of Universa, said: “The success in developing the main thrust of the new commodity trading platform is the perfect example of how blockchain technology has achieved one of the greatest achievements of the trade sector in recent history.
