BRF opens new plant at Kizad

BRF (Brasil Foods), one of the biggest food companies in the world, officially opened a new AED 588m (US$160m) factory at Kizad, Abu Dhabi today.

The opening ceremony of the largest food processing factory in the Middle East, the company responsible for the Sadia brand of frozen foods, was attended by Kizad CEO, Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi and the Brazilian Minister of Agriculture, Neri Gueller.

The investment provides BRF with a land plot of 162,157 square meters in Kizad and will employ 1,400 workers. The plant will have a production capacity of approximately 70 thousand tons of food products a year including breaded items, pizzas, burgers and others.

The strategic location of Kizad will facilitate faster and more efficient access of the Sadia brand to global markets, enhancing the brand’s quality and innovation and assuring Sadia’s commitment to delivering quality products tailored for consumers’ needs in the region.

“The new plant represents one of the key foundations of BRF’s strategy of commitment and investment to the Middle East region, a fast growing market that is most strategically placed for the internationalisation process of BRF products.”, says the BRF Chairman, Abilio Diniz.

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi said, “We are delighted to see BRF as the first investor to become operational in Kizad. The opening of the food production plant represents a crucial landmark in our continuous efforts to enable development and trade, while diversifying the emirate’s economy in line with Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030. The fact that BRF is opening its biggest Middle East plant in Kizad confirms the zone’s world-class business offerings, innovative logistics infrastructure and unprecedented access to global markets through our flagship deep-water Khalifa Port, the first semi-automated port in the region. As the local food industry promises significant growth in the years to come, the BRF plant will considerably contribute to the local production output and reduce the emirate’s dependence on imports.”
