The two facilities will account for an estimated annual trade of AED 900mn
DP World UAE recently announced the signing of two new development projects with multinational agricultural commodity processors, strengthening the F&B cluster and capabilities within Jebel Ali in Dubai.
The new integrated quayside facilities will enhance year-round availability and production of essential grains and pulses.
The signing ceremony was attended by Abdulla bin Damithan, CEO & Managing Director, DP World UAE and Jafza; Yogesh Raipuria, CEO, Adroit Canada; Yasin Abdul Majid Ranani, Managing Director, Al Amir Foods; and other officials from the entities.
DP World UAE’s Food and Agriculture Terminal at the Jebel Ali Port has positioned Dubai as a key gateway for global trade in the F&B sector. With an estimated investment of AED 200mn, the facilities will have a singular eco-system for bulk silo storage and agri-processing.
“Most importantly, through these projects, we hope to support the “Make it in the Emirates” initiative and Operation 300bn, which aims to raise the industrial sector’s contribution to AED 300bn by 2031,” affirmed Bin Damithan.
“Our successful collaboration started from our presence in Jafza and continues with our new agri-facility in Jebel Ali,” commented Raipuria.
“Our new facility in the Jebel Ali Port will serve as a gateway to the world, expanding our reach and preparing us to meet the demands of the rapidly growing pulses market,” remarked Ranani.
