Al Bayader boosts food packing capacity
Dubai, July 1, 2013
UAE-based Al Bayader International, a top food packaging specialist, has installed two thermoforming machines to boost production capacity in anticipation of 20 to 30 per cent rise in food consumption during Ramadan.
Each machine will increase the capacity by 7 tonnes per day per machine thus adding a 25 per cent increase in the total capacity of the plant. The current overall capacity of the plant is 55 tonnes per day.
Nidal Haddad, Group CEO, Al Bayader International said: “With food consumption expected to rise during the months of July and August, several factors including hygiene and safety are paramount to the health of the consuming public.
“The industry needs to be geared up to keep up with capacity needs to avoid any shortage in the necessary consumer goods due to the high demand. As market leaders, Al Bayader International has taken the step to not just boost production capacity but also maintain the high HACCP food-safe rating that we have to cater to the F&B industry.”
Al Bayader International’s popular consumer single-use tableware and kitchenware brand, Fun, which is found in all major supermarkets and hypermarkets, has over 465 products in its portfolio and used widely during Ramadan.
Its product range varies from soufras to containers, dessert cups to doilies, party products to aluminium foils and cling films.
A study conducted by Business Monitor International last year confirmed that the UAE spent Dh28.3 billion ($7.7 billion) on food products all over last year and the expenditure volume is expected to reach Dh7 billion during Ramadan. – TradeArabia News Service
