About Us

Melaxe Ltd has a long standing history and well respected reputation in the Middle East.

Established by Chris Jacques more than 25 years ago, Melaxe is a family run business providing a dedicated sales, marketing, account management and technical service to the food manufacturing industries of the Middle East.

We specialise in exporting food ingredients, flavour solutions and food packaging machinery to our customers – many of whom we have been supplying for over 10 years.

Melaxe was set up following a long and successful career in the Middle East with a number of companies including Spillers International and Imperial Food Group (Ross Breeders). Chris was involved in the early development of the poultry industry in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Lebanon along with building food manufacturing factories in Iraq and Jordan, supplying the industrial food industry and building long standing relationships in the Arab world.

Today, with Chris’ daughter, Melissa joining the business after a successful sales & marketing career in Oil & Gas, FMCG (Masterfoods) and Telecoms industry, Melaxe continues to represent several well known private as well as multi-national companies as their ‘Middle East Export Agent’ ensuring they have comprehensive representation in the Middle East region.

Melaxe covers all countries of the GCC (Gulf Co-operation Council) : Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, The UAE and Oman. In addition we also work in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and have long standing contacts in Northern Iraq.
