MM Mega Market Vietnam is breaking new ground by starting a new business model – the first depot (a form of transit warehouse for the storage and distribution of goods) in Phu Quoc.

The new MM Depot located at Suoi Da hamlet, Duong To, Phu Quoc city will include a variety of stored goods to be distributed including frozen food, dry food, and non-food items, for wholesale customers such as hotels, including 4-5-star hotels, 2-3-star eateries, and local grocery stores.
The Opening Depot Phu Quoc aims to bring a supply chain solution that is faster and more convenient for hotel, restaurant, and catering (HORECA) customers, an important customer group of MM Mega Market as Phu Quoc is transforming into the “first island city of Vietnam”.
MM depot on the island city of Phu Quoc provides frozen food, dry food, and non-food products, as well as specialises in categories required by HORECA customers. The storage area can store up to 25 tonnes, with distinguished areas for different types of products to ensure the best quality.

Nguyen Duc Toan, operation director of MM Mega Market (Vietnam) shared: “The depot model will serve as a location to store and distribute products to supply a variety of products while ensuring food safety with competitive prices for our customers in Phu Quoc – a highly developed area of travel services and hospitality which still has a lot of supply chain limitations. In addition, we also aim to distribute goods to the grocery stores here, the group of customers who also need to import wholesale goods and resell to individual customers on the island.”
Along with the MM Mega Market Rach Gia centre officially put into operation in 2012, MM Depot Phu Quoc is expected to help better meet the demand for safe and high-quality food and goods of the island city. Recently, MM Mega Market Rach Gia centre has just been honoured by the Food Hygiene and Safety Department of Kien Giang province for good achievements in ensuring food safety throughout 2019.
Phu Quoc is fast becoming Vietnam’s first island city, with ambitions to be a hub for high-quality tourism and leisure in the region as many domestic and international brands from the tourism, hotel, and restaurant scenes have been pouring in heavy investments in recent years. Phu Quoc currently has many urban tourist complexes being gradually put into operation to serve tourists, including over 700 accommodation establishments with more than 20,000 rooms and 15 high-end resorts, more than half of which are 3-5 star standards. These will also be key customer groups for MM Mega Market.
Recognising a future full of opportunities in Phu Quoc’s journey to become the “first island city of Vietnam”, and despite many challenges in establishing a smooth supply chain due to the unique sea and island topography, MM Mega Market opened the depot model to transfer, store, and distribute goods for HORECA customers to address their problem of supplying a diversity of goods in large quantities while ensuring food safety and competitive price.
