About Royal Dates Inc.
Royal Dates Inc. began importing dates in March of 2015, after a short visit to Saudi Arabia by owner Ghaz Syed led to his discovery of more date fruits that were not available in the Western Market.
Royal Dates Inc. will uphold its promise to import only the finest of dates. Owner Ghaz Syed stated in a recent interview “There are so many delicious flavours and nuances in taste that the West has never experienced before. Most companies import the cheapest of dates because they are easier to sell, but we’re proudly taken the road less traveled. We hope to tantalize the Vegans, the Sugar-Free, and the Organic Lovers taste buds with the caramel-like Sukkari Dates.” For more information, please visit http://www.royaldates.ca.
