INSPIRING GLOBAL BUSINESS

HFZA Food Park

REGION'S FIRST DEDICATED HUB FOR FOOD INDUSTRY

The UAE is the global food paradise and re-export hub for the Middle East and Africa. Demand for food products is ever growing as is the region’s population, and thanks to the support of the UAE Government and its visionary leadership, the food industry continues to thrive. Hamriyah Free Zone is committed to contributing to this growth by providing every possible competitive advantage and business support for the food industry in the region.

To cater for this increasing demand in both the local and regional markets, Hamriyah Free Zone Authority created Food Park, the first-of-its-kind in the Middle East, hub dedicated to food and allied commercial industries dealing in manufacturing, processing, import, export, holding and repackaging of food stuff.

Launched in 2017, HFZA Food Park is spread over 11 million square feet which has been specifically planned and developed for the unique requirements of the food industry. The Food Park consists of an array of pre-built warehouses with different load capacities – ranging from 50 kW to 150 kW, with built-in offices and facilities – all enabling investors to get their business operations in the shortest possible timeframe. Also available are plots of land for lease starting from 2,500 square meters.

HFZA Food Park also offers several value added services such as training for food safety and quality, certification for Halal and other services, project consultancy, food testing and lab services through a committed and dynamic team of food safety experts. Our Food Control department also acts as an interface between the food regulators and government authorities to ensure smooth and hassle free business operations for our investors.

Our strategic location, proximity to major markets, connectivity through land, air and sea, abundant low cost energy and water – in addition to the availability of a cost effective work force, give us a distinct advantage over our competition.

Hamriyah Free Zone’s Food Park is much more than merely infrastructure and facilities. We have created a vibrant destination that will help spearhead the growth of food sector across the entire MENA region. It will serve as a valuable community for all food ecosystem stakeholders, including of investors, facilitators, regulatory authorities, supply chain, distributors and most importantly, customers – all under one roof.
