AL ISLAMI FOODS TIES UP WITH SHARJAH COOP SOCIETY AT GULFOOD
DUBAI: Al Islami Foods, a leading halal food producer in the region, has signed an agreement with Sharjah Cooperative Society to set up meat shops at the Sharjah Coop retail outlets. The agreement signing ceremony was held at Al Islami stand during Gulfood exhibition.
“Despite global recession, the Gulfood exhibition this year has marked another success for Al Islami, which attracted an increased number of serious trade enquiries as compared to the last year. This is due to the reason that food business is the least affected sector of economy during the current financial crisis.” commented Saleh Abdullah Lootah, the CEO of Al Islami Foods.
“We are proud to partner with Sharjah Cooperative Society, which shares our vision. This partnership allows us to provide high quality meat directly to the consumers. The tie up underscores the success of Al Islami’s business strategy for the UAE market in line with company’s 5-year expansion plan into local and international markets.” added Saleh Lootah.
Saeed Al Suwaidi, Chairman of Sharjah Cooperative Society expressing his gratitude towards Al Islami said: “We are glad that AI Islami has chosen us to expand their meat shop business entity. We thank Al Islami for their solid trust posed to Sharjah Coop and extend warm welcome to start of a long-term partnership”
Sourced directly from Australia, Brazil, India, Pakistan and Egypt under the supervision of Al Islami’s food experts designated in these countries, fresh and real halal veal, beef, chicken and mutton would be available at AI Islami Meat Shops present at major supermarkets across the UAE by 2008.
