“We are honored to receive this prestigious title from the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment. There is no greater pleasure than supporting this wonderful nation in its efforts to establish long-term food security and ensure prosperous outcomes for its residents. We as a company realize our responsibility towards the people, the nation, and the environment in sourcing the safest and best quality products from international markets, and we aim to constantly improve our standards along with international norms. This award is not only a testament towards the UAE’s trust in our brand but also our trust in the future of this evolving nation.”

NRTC Fresh has been constantly exploring avenues to support UAE’s long-term food security as the country continues to import approximately 80-90% of its food supplies by enhancing national logistics infrastructure and assisting in the development of the local agriculture industry.

NRTC Fresh had recently launched a new organic range of fruits and vegetables that are locally sourced from ‘Heaven Organic Farms’ (an Abu Dhabi-based organic farm) to be sold alongside their extensive range of exported fresh produce.

The organization has been striving to balance both imported and local produce by enhancing its locally-sourced organic range to facilitate sustainable development in the nation and reassure its continued commitment to supplying fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables for consumers.
