LuLu stores in Saudi Arabia launch Indian food festival

  • The week-long event, in celebration of India’s Independence Day, features about 2,000 products

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.

Hyundai donates 24 vehicles to Saudi Red Crescent

Hyundai Motor Company is supporting the Saudi Red Crescent Authority’s (SRCA) ongoing efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic by contributing 20 fully equipped ambulances and four support vehicles of the Hyundai H-1 model. The automaker aims to assist the frontline workers and public during these unprecedented times by offering the H-1 ambulances to seamlessly transport the health care professionals, the elderly and others.

The contribution is part of Hyundai’s commitment to giving back to the community and supporting the SRCA’s remarkable work in addressing the spread of the coronavirus in Saudi Arabia.

Hyundai is working hand-in-hand with its authorized distributors in the Kingdom — Al-Wallan Trading Company, Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors Company and Almajdouie Motors — to align its efforts with the government’s directives to deal with the situation.

Hyundai’s distributors will work closely with the official authorities in Saudi Arabia to deliver the vehicles directly to the SRCA.

Bang Sun Jeong, vice president and head of Middle East and Africa operations at Hyundai, said: “Caring for humanity has always been at the heart of Hyundai’s vision. We did not hesitate in taking this initiative with Hyundai distributors in the Kingdom during these challenging times, and we are proud of their association with the Saudi Red Crescent Authority in the fight against this pandemic.

“This contribution is another step in the direction of making a positive difference in the Saudi community and we believe by strengthening the relationships between the private and public sectors, it will benefit the Saudi Red Crescent Authority and help support members of the community across the Kingdom.”

He added: “We sincerely hope our efforts contribute toward making a difference in this fight, and we believe if we stay together, we can overcome anything. We hope this pandemic can soon come to an end and we can help people get back to their daily lives.”
