BRF invests AED 533 Million in Kizad’s Food Cluster

Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad) has announced signing of a new Musataha agreement with Brasil Foods (BRF), claimed to be South America’s largest food processing company, and the producers of Sadia, brand of frozen foods. The agreement, with Federal Foods Company, the local arm of Brasil Foods, was signed by Eng Khaled Salmeen, CEO and Managing Director of Kizad, and Patricio Rohner, General Director BRF Middle East of Brasil Foods, the announcement added.

The AED 533-million investment it has reportedly made provides Brasil Foods with a land plot of 1,743,000 square feet in the free zone area’s food manufacturing cluster of Kizad Area A, which will be used to produce diverse products, including meat products, marinated processed foods and other bread-based foods.

Expected to be fully operational by 2014, the plant will have a production capacity of 80,000 tonnes annually, said Kizad.

Commenting on the tie-up, Salmeen said: “We are pleased to welcome South America’s largest food processing company, and the largest poultry exporter in the world, to Kizad. Through Kizad’s food manufacturing cluster, we aim to support Abu Dhabi’s Economic vision 2030 by increasing food production within the emirate through reducing dependence on imports. Brasil Foods will benefit from Kizad’s multi-modal transportation infrastructure and proximity to Khalifa Port, the only semi-automated port in the Middle East, allowing them to tap new markets and increase their business output dramatically.”
