As part of Discover America Week 2021, U.S. Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Margaret Nardi visited the Tamimi Markets in Mall of Dilmunia, Muharraq, where she was welcomed by Tamimi Markets General Manager, Bobby Rajendran, who also took the CDA on a tour of the American products on prominent display. 

On this occasion, CDA Nardi commented, “I am thrilled to participate in this year’s Discover America Week and celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Free Trade Agreement, the cornerstone of economic ties between Bahrain and the United States.  This is a good opportunity for the Bahraini community to explore U.S. franchises and iconic American food brands like the ones displayed here today.”

Mr. Rajendran also remarked, “Tamimi Markets is the proud home of many exciting American brands, including our exclusive Safeway USA lines (O Organic, Signature, Lucerne) and Costco’s Kirkland Signature range, as well as fresh items like US Certified Angus Beef. You’ll find all our USA products identified throughout the store as shoppers enjoy Discover America Week at Tamimi Markets.”

At the end of the Tamimi Markets tour, CDA Nardi and Mr. Rajendran commemorated the official opening of Discover America Week 2021 and the 15th Anniversary of the US-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement with a celebratory cake.
