Dubai Municipality and Majid Al Futtaim – Retail partner to ensure sustainable food supply chain

by Madaline Dunn

Dubai Municipality has announced that it has signed an MoU with Majid Al Futtaim – Retail with the aim of ensuring the sustainable provision of strategic food commodities in Dubai’s local markets.

Speaking about this, Alia Al Harmoodi, Acting CEO of the Environment, Health, and Safety Agency, said: “The agreement will support Majid Al Futtaim – Retail in strengthening the flexibility, readiness, and preparedness of the emirate’s supply chain to address challenges and crises. This will be achieved through efficient coordination and sharing of strategic food commodity data on the Food Security Platform. The objective is to ensure that all members of society have access to healthy, safe, nutritious, and affordable food, even in times of crisis and emergencies.”

Indeed, the strategic partnership with Majid Al Futtaim – Retail, which has the exclusive franchise to operate Carrefour in the UAE, outlines the provision of technical requirements for electronic connectivity regarding strategic food commodity data within the food security platform. 

Further, it monitors the challenges and constraints that impact the supply chains of these commodities. 

This agreement also aims to improve coordination and proactive communication between both parties regarding whether the supply of these food commodities is inadequate or affected, to enhance decision-making and preparedness to address the risks associated with food security crises and emergencies, further mitigating shortages, and enabling expedited responses.

Awareness programs will also run to promote best practices in support of sustainable food security.

Alia Al Harmoodi, Acting CEO of the Environment, Health, and Safety Agency, and Jean-Luc Graziato, Chief Commercial Officer of Majid Al-Futtaim -Retail, signed the MoU on the first day of the Gulfood Exhibition.

Jean-Luc Graziato, Chief Commercial Officer of Majid Al-Futtaim – Retail, commented: “Majid Al Futtaim – Retail places great importance on food security as a key component of our sustainability strategy. We are delighted to collaborate with Dubai Municipality in creating a future that is more sustainable, healthier, and safer for our valued customers.”

“This agreement will help enhance Carrefour’s leading position as a key provider of essential products in the UAE. Our data accurately represents consumer needs and preferences, supporting our future vision to provide better customer service. In addition, this data will assist Dubai Municipality in implementing strategies to strengthen food security efforts within the Emirate,” Graziato added.
