Supermarket chain will have distribution centre with dedicated cold storage facility in Kizad’s logistics cluster

Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad) has announced that Spinneys, a supermarket chain, will operate a fresh distribution centre with a dedicated cold storage facility in the industrial zone’s logistics cluster. The 50-year Musataha Agreement was signed by Engineer Khaled Salmeen, CEO, Kizad, and Jannie Holtzhausen, CEO, Spinneys Dubai LLC, the announcement added.

Spinneys revealed that it has been allocated a 382,905-square foot plot to build and operate a dedicated cold storage and distribution centre to manage food and non-food products and Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) meant for the UAE stores as well as international markets.

Commenting on the tie-up between the two entities, Eng Salmeen said: “Spinneys’ facility in Kizad means that they will be able to get products to market quicker and more efficiently in the UAE and internationally. This is a boost for local consumers and the local economy. Using our world-class Khalifa port to reach target markets with greater efficiency will help Spinneys grow its business reach and potential in the UAE, the GCC and other markets.”

Holtzhausen added: “Spinneys’ investment in Kizad’s logistics zone will enable us to take advantage of the low-cost operating environment on offer. In addition to the direct benefits of setting up in the logistics cluster, such as proximity to airports and ports in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and other major cities, it will enable us to get our products from international markets faster and more efficiently. And in turn, our stores can deliver an improved service in the UAE and across the GCC, making Kizad the right place to be for our organisation.”
