UAE’s first Emirati grocery delivery platform, Food Crowd has joined Al Silal, a government initiative aimed at effectively supporting and promoting the country’s food security vision.

The initiative will help the UAE to achieve its goals of self-sufficiency, food security, and traditional farming preservation. The significance of diversifying food sources, and increasing production of locally grown, raised, and manufactured food has become ever important.

The partnership between Food Crowd and Al Silal aims to increase products grown locally, encourage farmer entrepreneurship, and provide an eCommerce platform for local goods.
Food Crowd is a modern-day online marketplace that sources a large portion of its goods directly from the farms and delivers fresh, high-quality products to consumers.

According to the company, “Food Crowd joining the “Al Silal initiative” is to help ensure that the UAE population has access to safe, sufficient, and nutritious food at affordable prices and supporting local farmers, which we are very passionate about. Food Crowd aims to be a link for consumers through our eCommerce platform that sources and delivers fresh, high-quality products directly from the farm.”
