“Sabaa Sanabel” flour, made from wheat indigenously produced in the Emirate of Sharjah, has earned a new laurel becoming the first national product to obtain the ‘Made in the UAE’ mark.

Sabaa Sanabel has attained the highest quality and safety requirements now in effect in the United Arab Emirates, enhancing its marketability and gaining the trust of local consumers.

Dr. Khalifa Musabeh Ahmed Alteneiji, Chairman of the Department of Agriculture and Livestock in Sharjah stressed that the Sharjah wheat production is in line with the vision and directives of H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, developing safe and sustainable agricultural and animal projects aimed at conserving the environment, preserving human health, producing clean and healthy food free of chemicals, enhancing the competitiveness of indigenous production.

Dr. Ahmed Alteneiji commented that “The production of Sabaa Sanabel wheat flour by the Sharjah Agricultural and Livestock Production Corporation marks a landmark achievement for the Emirate and the UAE. The wheat indigenously produced in Sharjah is considered one of the best types as it contains a high percentage of protein, is free of any chemicals and genetic modification.”

Dr. Alteneji pointed out that Sabaa Sanabel received five authorized certificates in quality and safety, as it does not contain anything that changes its nutritional value, quality, or nature. Producing clean, safe, and nutritious food is one of the Department of Agriculture and Livestock’s aims, goals, and sustainability initiatives.

The quality marks and certificates won by the indigenous wheat product will help earn consumer confidence as they meet the highest quality and safety standards and applicable national and international specifications in addition to supporting the competitiveness of national products, Dr. Alteneji stated.

Dr. Alteneiji added that “The producing agencies are committed to applying the approved international quality standards effectively in all their products.”
