Green Corp acquires Emad Bakeries

Green Corp, a business creation platform created by Gulf Islamic Investments (GII), has acquired Emad Bakeries, a prominent Jeddah-based producer of Arabic bread and pastries.

Emad Bakeries operates the largest industrial fresh flatbread bakery in western Saudi Arabia, with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. This additional investment empowers Emad Bakeries’ plans to extend its operations and expertise into new parts of the Kingdom.

Incorporating Emad Bakeries into the GreenCorp portfolio represents a significant step forward for GreenCorp’s food production and processing investment platform backed by Gulf Islamic Investments (GII), a leading Sharia-compliant alternative investment firm with over $4.5 billion of assets under management (AUM).

Green Corp’s mandate is to invest in high-growth, demand-driven, scalable and sustainable food businesses across GCC, creating an integrated food platform across the food value chain to derive sustainable benefits for consumers, and to reduce food import dependency.

“Acquiring Emad Bakeries represents a significant step forward in our growth strategy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We are confident that Emad Bakeries’ heritage and commitment to quality will resonate deeply with our customers in Saudi Arabia.”

The strategic acquisition of Emad Bakeries boosts GreenCorp’s investments in food processing operations, adding to the recent expansion of its controlled environment agriculture company Badia Farms in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain. The addition of Emad Bakeries brings fast-growing food production capabilities as a crucial component of the GreenCorp food-related investment platform.

Pankaj Gupta, fellow GII co-founder and co-CEO, stated that, “Adding Emad Bakeries to Green Corp’s managed portfolio is a strategic move that aligns perfectly with our vision of establishing GreenCorp as a comprehensive GCC food investment platform, encompassing the entire nutritional value chain, and enhancing Gulf food security. We aim to make further acquisitions in the Kingdom, as we build Green Corp’s asset portfolio.”
