Dofreeze, one of the largest industrial manufacturers of long-shelf-life baked products in the Middle East, has been granted a start-up certificate for its AED180 million facility in Dubai Industrial City (DIC).
The granting of the certificate follows the successful completion of DIC's inspection process.
Built on a 500,000 sq ft plot and equipped with five fully automated production lines, Dofreeze's Dubai plant will make products such as layer cakes, muffins and frozen pastries, to be exported to over 35 countries including Hong Kong, China, Australia, Singapore and the US.
DIC vice president Rashid Al Ansari said that he regarded Dofreeze's prospects as a testament to the opportunities for investment in Dubai.
"The state-of-the-art Dofreeze plant is a testament to the competitive advantage DIC offers as a one-stop destination, our 360-degree approach to meeting all the industrial sector needs and highlights our status as a township located outside a free zone but allowing companies to export their goods tariff-free across the Gulf Cooperation Council and the Arab world," he added.
DIC is a member of Tecom Investments and is the third largest non-real estate project in Dubai.
