Overview:AANI & DANI began as a vision in the 1998s of Mr. Khaled Al-Othaim. Khaled knew that many European countries, particularly Belgium and Switzerland, produced the best chocolates and sweets the world had to offer. Hundreds of flavors, along with various colors and textures, were painstakingly blended to create luxurious sweets, and presented in ways that appealed to all five senses. They were amazingly fresh, incredibly elegant and beautifully formed.
Yet, no one in the K.S.A produced chocolates of this distinct quality anywhere. Some sellers tried to import raw cocoa, as well as various chocolates and other sweets, but local consumers found them to be stale and bland tasting, as they had lost their freshness during the time in transit.
Khaled made it his mission to offer the best chocolates, cakes, and other delights in the Kingdom and to give local consumers the same level of quality that was offered throughout Europe.
He began by bringing in a master chef directly from Belgium, trained in the fine art of chocolate and confectionery making. And, to ensure every single AANI & DANI product was of the highest quality, he insisted on using only the freshest, finest ingredients, presented in elegant boxes and displays to highlight his creations.
With great excitement, AANI & DANI opened their first shop in the Al-Fayha District of Riyadh City in March of 1998. Locals and visitors alike were quickly impressed with the selection, quality, and value they received. A wide collection of fine chocolates, including Belgian, German, and Swiss, amazed all who tried them. French Macarons, cakes, and Sabaya were also on display, highlighting AANI & DANI’s incredible ability to produce the finest sweets available anywhere.
Today, AANI & DANI has grown throughout the Kingdom and Mr. Khaled is recognized as a leader in the Food and Beverage Industry, making the Top 10 List in Forbes Middle East magazine.
