Abu Dhabi's new fresh produce and agritech company Silal has signed agreements with more than 850 local farms to supply more than 30,000 tons of fresh produce during the current crop season.
Eng. Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, CEO of Silal: “Silal amplifies farmers' capabilities in Abu Dhabi to boost local production of agricultural crops and build strong and smart food supply chains. Silal will continue to expand contract farming in Abu Dhabi and deploy advanced agritech solutions by working with local and international partners. This is to achieve increased volumes of fresh agricultural crop production and raise the UAE's self-sufficiency in selected products.”
Silal provides agricultural inputs to its contracted farmers and has a team of agricultural engineers who collaborate with the farmers to improve production quality and yields, while also encouraging sustainable farming practices.
As reported on menafn.com¸ Silal offers premium pricing options to empower and protect farmers livelihoods from market price volatility. The company operates 16 collection centres across the emirate of Abu Dhabi, and three pack-houses.
