The WenChao Group will invest over Dhs735m to construct a food manufacturing and distribution facility in Dubai Industrial City.

Construction of the more than 950,000 sqft facility will start in the first half of 2022.

The factory will manufacture, process and distribute semi-cooked and braised food locally utilising integrated warehouse systems.

The new agreement was signed on Tuesday at the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS).

“For well over a decade, [WenChao Group] have demonstrated tremendous innovation and growth with their production and storage activities, as well as e-commerce logistics,” said Saud Abu Al-Shawareb, managing director of Dubai Industrial City.

“This new partnership demonstrates Dubai Industrial City’s commitment to the Operation 300bn strategy by enhancing the UAE’s industrial sector and diversifying our national economy. This factory will play a major role in localising food production and distribution and feed our ambitions to develop a more sustainable and self-reliant future.”

Founded in Dubai in 2006, WenChao Group has a diverse portfolio which also includes a retail group integrating e-commerce logistics, chain hypermarket ‘Wemart’. The organisation has also founded a number of F&B brands, including YaoYi Tea and Tasty Yue, and boasts a global trade network covering nearly 20 countries.

WenChao Group also owns the WenChao Green Farm in Dubai’s Nazwa desert region where it grows approximately 50 varieties of vegetables across 80,000 sqft.

The company aims to venture into vertical farming in 2023. The second growth phase will see the construction of a 4 million sqft vertical farm set for completion in 2025.
