Al Amir Food’s facility covers 13,500 square meters and costs AED35 million.
Al Amir Food Industries (AAFI) is to invest AED 35 million in a new food production facility in Ras Al Khaimah. The 13,500-square-metre space will focus on processing pulses and spices, importing products from Canada, Australia, and Russia, and exporting to the GCC and East Africa. It is hoped that the space will create 50 new jobs.
In addition to importing and exporting, the company will also offer white labeling solutions, where Al Amir’s products can be customized according to customers’ brands. The answer will be targeted at retailers, high-end supermarket chains, and ethnic stores.
The space in the Al Ghail Industrial Zone was made possible through an agreement with the Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone.

When asked why the company chose RAKEZ for its new facility, AAFI Managing Director Abdul Majid Ranan said: “RAKEZ’s industrial zones offer strategic access to several ports, and Ras Al Khaimah’s central location for bulk trade allows us to easily distribute our goods. The economic zone also offers a fully developed infrastructure ideal for us to carry out our operations easily and cost-effectively”.
Commenting on the addition of AAFI to the RAKEZ ecosystem, RAKEZ Group CEO Ramy Jallad said: “We are delighted to be the preferred hub of another prominent manufacturing and supply chain player in the F&B sector – Al Amir Food Industries. Our existing logistics infrastructure and end-to-end industrial solutions will fully support the company’s import and export journey”.
He added: “One of our goals, in line with the UAE’s food security strategy, is to support sustainable food production and enhance local manufacturing by providing F&B investors with a nurturing environment in which to grow and expand.
We are currently home to hundreds of F&B companies involved in agri-tech, manufacturing, packaging, and trading, and we will continue to enhance our industrial ecosystem and strengthen our support for global F&B players looking to thrive in the MENA region.”
