Food Point commenced operations in July 2005, marking the start of a new era in food production in the region. It is currently the only food production facility of its kind between Europe and the Far East, and has an capacity of 20 million meal equivalents per year. The 10,000m2 facility is situated at Dubai Investment Park, and has the flexibility to meet all customer needs, from a small batch of 300kg of sauce for hotels and contract caterers to a large- batch of 15,000 centrally produced meals for airlines.
The facility is designed with meticulous attention to health and safety, ensuring a safe environment for staff whilst maintaining the best standards in food hygiene. This strict adherence is evident even in the floors, walls, ceilings, and belt conveyors which incorporate Microban, a technology that is built into products during manufacturing to provide continuous antibacterial and antifungal protection. This ensures that our building is as hygienic as is technically possible. Additionally, ISO, HACCP and ITCA (International Travel Catering Association) guidelines are followed as well as those laid down by the Dubai Municipality, which are amongst the strictest in the world and are based on EU principles.
The production area is divided into two clearly segregated zones: Low Risk and High Care. This achieves a complete separation of raw and cooked products, avoiding any risk of cross contamination. This principle is strictly adhered to throughout the day-to-day operation of the facility.
From a global perspective, Food Point is ideally situated at the heart of one of the world's largest trading zones, and suppliers from all around the globe are used to acquire the very best quality ingredients. Every step of the procurement process is fully audited to ensure extreme hygiene levels, as well as flawless maintenance of the cold chain.
