LuLu Hypermarkets is celebrating India’s Independence Day, which falls on Aug. 15, with an Indian-themed food festival across its stores in Saudi Arabia.
The week-long promotion, which continues until Aug. 18, features about 2,000 Indian products, including organic groceries, fresh foods, ethnic delicacies and desserts.
“We are trying to showcase the versatility and diversity of Indian food products handpicked by our well-spread supply chain in India and across the world,” said Shehim Mohammed, director of LuLu Hypermarkets Saudi Arabia.
The proximity of India to the Kingdom means that more fresh products arrive regularly, he added, most of which are flown in to maintain their freshness “as we move closer to a farm-to-fork concept in (the Kingdom), featuring both locally and internationally sourced ranges.”
As Saudi Arabia gears up for the start of the new school term, LuLu has also launched its back-to-school promotions.
