Kizad showcases offerings at Gulfood

ABU DHABI, February 16, 2020

Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, is participating in the 25th edition of Gulfood, the largest food and beverage processing and packaging exhibition in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

Gulfood 2020 which opened today (February 16) will run until February 20, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai.

The region’s largest industrial zone is emerging as the hub for the food and beverage sector, and is home to some of the world’s largest food processing and manufacturing companies, as well as allied services, said a statement.

Mohamed Ghareeb, vice president - Service Delivery- IZ, Kizad, said: “Gulfood helps us reinforce the critical role Kizad plays in enabling the future growth and success of the region’s food processing and handling market.”

“Our cluster-based approach ensures that our customers are close to their customers and suppliers, linked together with state-of-the-art infrastructure, and low setup and operational costs, all of which help them bring their products to market faster,” he added.

Kizad is the regional home to many global companies in the food processing and packaging industry, including Brazilian food processing giant BRF, the largest in the Middle East, and Pinar dairy products plant, as well as leading national brands such as National Food Products Company (NFPC), Al Dahra Agricultural Company and Binghatti Holding Group.

Last month Madar Farms announced a new multi-million-dirham commercial scale indoor tomato farm at Kizad, and earlier this month, RNZ AgroTech signed an agreement to set up an R&D centre for bio/organic/inorganic fertilisers and bio-pesticides.

The UAE has demonstrated a sustained commitment to support its domestic food production industry, through a focus on strengthening food security, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
