Kashrut оf Kosher Arabia
Kosher Arabia, a joint venture between Emirates Flight Catering (EKFC) and CCL Holdings, has opened a modern catering facility in Dubai that has become one of the first registered and certified producers of kosher food in the UAE. The company has an initial team of 20 dedicated culinary professionals, all of whom have been trained in the preparation, handling and serving of kosher food, for the aviation, hospitality and events sectors, including the Dubai Expo.
The Kosher Arabia facility has the capacity to produce more than 2,000 meals a day. Kosher food has been increasing in popularity over recent years, partly due to it being widely considered a healthy option in terms of both ingredients and preparation methods. EKFC expects that demand for kosher food in the UAE and region will also grow quickly.
The facility has been designed with a focus on environmental sustainability, taking advantage of EKFC’s infrastructure, equipment and best practices, using energy-efficient technologies, recycling waste where appropriate, and offering eco-friendly packaging.
