Dubai-based Al Islami Foods is set to invest Dh100 million ($27 million) on a new food processing facility in Dubai to meet the increasing regional demands for high-quality halal food products, said a report.
The construction of the 11,500-sq ft facility at the Dubai Investment Park will begin early next month and is expected to be completed by the end 2014, said the report in the Arab News.
