The company announced that it has invested an estimated Dhs 250 million into the facility. The new plant marks a significant step in Hotpack’s vision to emerge as the premier global food packaging manufacturer by 2030.

The purpose-built manufacturing plant will produce Hotpack’s high-performance and sustainable PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) packaging products. The facility is also going to function as a centre for various Hotpack arms with manufacturing, e-commerce, logistics, and marketing being localized in one building.

 Commenting on the company’s latest manufacturing facility,  Abdul Jebbar PB, Group Managing Director of Hotpack Global, said, “We are excited to unveil the largest and our most technologically advanced facility yet. In keeping with our pledge to spearhead the eco-friendly food packaging products initiatives to decrease pollution, the plant generates zero per cent waste and is environmentally friendly. The NIP plant is equipped to consume 100 per cent post-consumer recycled (PCR) PET material in the extrusion process ensuring a circular supply chain.”

  Abdulla Al Jasmi, Head of National Industries Park, said: At NIP, we always align our work with the developmental goals of the UAE’s wise leadership. The addition of manufacturers like Hotpack will significantly contribute to our position as a leader in the UAE’s industrial sector. The government aims to boost the manufacturing sector’s contribution to the economy over the next few years by creating an industrial identity to support domestic products and promote the sector globally. NIP will work with manufacturers like Hotpack to support this goal.”

Elaborating on the technological advancements driving the operations at the Hotpack plant, Zainudeen PB, Group Executive Director of Hotpack Global, said, “The Hotpack NIP plant is a technological marvel, equipped with cutting-edge extrusion, thermoforming, and printing machines from the leading equipment providers in the world.”
