The Food Innovation Conference 2024, hosted in the Museum of the Future and Emirates Towers this week, brings together over 150 international experts, academics, local, regional and global private sector players and farmers under the theme of ‘Reimagining Future Food Systems.’

The conference explores the role of technology in supporting resilient, inclusive, and sustainable food systems, as well as the latest trends in food system sustainability, with attendance from the likes of Al Dahra Holding. 

Speaking on the sidelines of his participation at the conference, His Excellency Khedaim Abdullah Al Derei, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Al Dahra Holding, said that the company’s participation stems from understanding the “vital role” of innovation in the field.

“We consistently invest in new tech that drives production efficiency and quality. We believe innovation is the key to facing all challenges, including climate change and the scarcity of resources,” commented the Co-Founder. 

“Food industries are undergoing rapid transformations, prompting us to come up with sustainable cutting-edge solutions in order to keep up. To this end, technology offers the means to make significant strides in enhancing the sustainability of the food sector, while improving quality of life across communities.

“The conference provides a great opportunity to share expertise with various players in the field, and we hope Al Dahra is part of the solution to empower a comprehensive, inclusive and sustainable food system,” he added.

Al Dahra Holding also serves as one of the partners of the Food Innovation Hub UAE, established in collaboration between Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) and the World Economic Forum (WEF). The Hub aims to develop solutions and initiatives to enhance food production, ensure the sustainability of food supply chains, and fight global hunger.

According to Al Dahra, the company adopts a holistic strategy that employs the latest technologies and practices in the food sector alongside strategies aimed at curbing climate change, price fluctuation, and supply chain challenges. 

The company has 400 thousand acres of agricultural land in Egypt, Romania, Serbia, USA, and others, with a widespread geographical footprint, operating in over 20 countries and catering to more than 40 markets.
