Kosher Arabia, a joint venture (JV) between Emirates Flight Catering (EKFC) and CCL Holdings, has become one of the first registered and accredited producers of kosher food in the UAE with the opening of its ultramodern catering facility in Dubai.

The JV will provide fresh, high-quality kosher meals to customers in the aviation, hospitality, and events industries, including the Dubai Expo 2020, across the Gulf region, with innovative solutions and tailored services.

The company has begun operations with a team of 20 dedicated culinary professionals who had all received extensive kosher food preparation, handling, and serving training.

Kosher Arabia’s production facility, located in Dubai World Central (DWC), is equipped with cutting-edge technology and has a daily capacity of over 2000 meals. The company strictly enforces all health and safety laws to ensure a safe working environment for employees and to uphold the highest standards in food hygiene, as per the reports.

According to the company, Kosher Arabia is dedicated to sustainably using resources and reducing the environmental impact of its operations in all areas. Using EKFC’s infrastructure, equipment, and best practices, the company employs energy-efficient technologies, recycles waste where possible, and provides innovative, environmentally friendly packaging services.
