As Dubai starts to reopen the tourism sector post-COVID-19, the seal assures that the institutions are compliant with the issued health and safety guidelines and standards.

In this regard, the Union Coop has obtained ‘Dubai assured stamp for tourism and retail establishments’ for its commitment to the standards and guidelines for public health and safety, and its eagerness to follow and apply the highest international standards to ensure the safety of its visitors from the population of the country and its visitors.

Highlighting the significance of this achievement, Khalid Humaid Bin Diban Al Falasi, CEO of Union Coop said: “Since the inception of Union Coop, it is committed to applying the highest standards of international protocols in terms of public safety and health, which is reflected in the level of services provided to the Union Coop’s consumers and UAE tourists in a positive and unique way,” indicating that Union Coop works closely in partnership with the regulatory authorities in the country to provide a role model in the area of cooperative work in the retail trade.

“Union Coop earned the stamp of achievement for fulfilling the public health and safety requirements set by the Dubai Municipality,” added Al Falasi, who also noted that Union Coop is one of the first outlets in the country that took strict precautionary measures during the Corona pandemic, providing sanitisers and gloves free of charge, sterilising vehicles and checking temperature for employees and its visitors and many other measures.
