Speaking on the occasion, Elite Agro Holding Chief Executive Officer and Member of the board Dr. Almarzooqi said, “Our agreement with LuLu Group, one of the largest retailers in the GCC, Asia and Africa, enhances our farm to table offering for locally-grown, fresh varieties of healthy fruit and vegetables. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with LuLu Group through this MoU and increasing our production of high quality locally grown food that our customers can trust."
“Furthermore, this MoU also underlines Elite Agro’s commitment to boosting local farms production capacities, as well as increasing food security and competitiveness in the UAE. We give our unwavering support to the recently-announced UAE Vision 2031 to increase investment in the food sector by 100 percent by 2030” he added.
For his part, Yusuffali MA commented, “We are extremely proud and delighted to join hands with Elite Agro Holding to procure and promote locally grown vegetables. As a key stakeholder in the food security of the country, we have always been supporting UAE agricultural sector and I am sure this MOU will further widen the market and popularity of locally grown Agri-produce.”
“Our UAE farmers and the local manufacturers are industrious and hard-working. On the occasion of UAE National Day, we felt it was only fitting to award them and recognise their contribution to our beloved Emirates,” he added.
