In a bid to meet rising demand, Al Ain Food and Beverages (P.J.S.C), one of the bottled drinking water manufacturers in the U.A.E., has expanded its production of Al Ain Water from 32 million cases to 52 million cases of bottled water a year, thus boosting production by 60 percent.
“The bottled water market is growing at an unprecedented scale across the Middle East region, and with the U.A.E. rapidly progressing, our new, long-term manufacturing strategy is to constantly meet rising demand,” says Fasahat Beg, Executive Vice President of Agthia Consumer Business Division.
“We are a recognised leader in the market, and with Agthia making a total investment of approximately AED90 million in this facility, we fully expect to increase our share of the domestic market and continue to consolidate our position.” Al Ain Water’s state-of-the-art production facility is the first in the U.A.E. and among the first in the region to receive the FSSC 22000 certification by LRQA. The FSSC 22000 is the latest Food Safety Standard based on the FSMS, Food Safety Management System, requirements and the PAS 220, Publicly Available Specification.
