Global Food Industries wins big at Gulfood Innovation Awards 2018

Global Food Industries (GFI) bagged two major awards at this year’s edition of the Gulfood Innovation Awards, held at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
GFI is a world-class value-added frozen food manufacturing company, part of Albatha Holding, one of the largest conglomerates in the UAE.
The company’s “Chicken Quinoa & Kale Burgers” and “Super Chicken Quinoa & Kale Nuggets” won in the “Best Halal Food” and “Best Meat or Poultry Innovation” categories, besting other local and international brands. The awards were organized as part of the annual Gulfood show, the largest gathering of food, beverage and hospitality suppliers, which opened on Sunday and will run until Thursday at the DWTC.
The awards were given in recognition of the company’s contributions to the rapidly growing food industry and its achievement as the first company in the Middle East region to launch a pioneering range of healthy chicken burgers and nuggets, which are being produced and manufactured under GFI’s Healthy Farm brand.
The company’s “Chicken Quinoa & Kale Burgers” and “Super Chicken Quinoa & Kale Nuggets” are all 100 percent natural — with 30 percent more protein, 90 percent more fiber, 40 percent less sodium, 40 percent less carbohydrates and 60 percent less calories. The products also offer eight times less fat, 12 times less saturated fat and six times more calcium as compared to the other chicken burger patties and nuggets available in the market today.
Jacek Plewa, general manager of Global Food Industries, said: “It is a very inspiring moment for Global Food Industries to once again be recognized for two major awards at Gulfood. These awards demonstrate our relentless efforts to create innovative products that aim at addressing health challenges of our consumers like obesity to diabetes via our Healthy Farm products. This win proves the very strong potential of our unique chicken burgers and nuggets to truly serve the UAE and regional market with highly nutritious and tasty food products.”
Plewa added: “These awards have prompted us to work harder with our research and development initiatives in the food sector and continue to demonstrate our commitment toward promoting a healthy and balanced lifestyle to our consumers. The rising health concerns of our society have inspired us to keep introducing new products that will significantly contribute to the country’s efforts in reducing lifestyle diseases.”

Emaar to build ME’s largest Chinatown in Dubai

Emaar has announced a landmark development that is expected to further strengthen UAE-China relations, coinciding with the historic visit of President Xi Jinping of China to the UAE.
To honor Chinese expatriates in the UAE and further bolster business ties with China, Emaar will develop the Middle East’s largest Chinatown within the retail district of Dubai Creek Harbor, its six-square-kilometer mega-development, only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and the Burj Khalifa.
“The retail precinct will occupy a central location within Dubai Creek Harbor — a destination which will be home to the world’s new icon, Dubai Creek Tower, and encompass vibrant lifestyle elements. Set by the Dubai Creek waterway, elegantly designed homes in Dubai Creek Harbor will offer spectacular views of the city’s dramatic skyline, the waterfront and the Ras Al-Khor Wildlife Sanctuary — home to over 450 animal species and migratory birds, including pink flamingos,” Emaar said in a press release.
