BRF is set to expand its production facility in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad). 

The seventh big food firm in the world has intensified its international expansion over the last two years and is set to boost its annual production capacity in the Kizad plant from 72,000 tonnes to 100,000 tonnes by the end of 2016.

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “Kizad is home to the largest food plant of its kind in the Middle East, and the fact that BRF is planning to expand its production capacity even further is yet another testament of the dynamic platform we provide – from integrated solutions, to a conducive business environment and competitive business edge.”

Pedro Faria, Global CEO of BRF, added: “The factory in Kizad is one of our big success stories. This plant is a benchmark in terms of integrating the global production chain and a way for us to make the UAE an important export hub for the region.”

BRF began production at Kizad in November 2014.
