“We welcome Delta Food Industries’ new initiative. It is pleasing to see more manufacturing units flocking to SAIF Zone, which is surely a sign that we are progressing. I hope that this initiative will enable Delta Food to offer its products locally and regionally and expand its network”,Saud Salim Al Mazrouei, director of SAIF Zone and Hamriyah Free Zone Authority said while opening the plant.
“The new plant will manufacture evaporated milk and cream. The production machinery is the latest available in the industry and it is capable of producing 250,000 cartons per month of evaporated milk and cream,” said Shiraz Osman, founder and chairman of Delta Food Industries.
“We are capitalizing on the first four years of operation inside the SAIF Zone, with our latest initiative, the dairy plant, which will see the enhancement of capacities as well as the range of products. We are now entering the next stage of our growth. Currently, Delta Food Industries is the second largest food manufacturing company in the UAE”, added Shiraz Osman.
