Badia Farms partners with Classic Fine Foods to deliver local, fresh and chemical-free leafy greens from farm to fork within hours
The GCC’s first commercial vertical indoor farm, Badia Farms, is now the first local brand to have their products be distributed by Classic Fine Foods. This partnership will extend the farm’s reach to restaurants and HoReCa trade across the UAE, as Classic Fine Foods caters to the country’s top food destination.
Badia Farms – which was officially inaugurated March 1st , 2018 by His Excellency Dr Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, UAE Minister of Climate Change and Environment – grows an extensive range of post-organic micro-greens and baby leaf herb varieties in a controlled indoor environment, using hydroponic technology. As the farm’s distributor, Classic Fine Foods will be the logistical partner, delivering its products to chefs across the UAE.
Omar Al Jundi, founder and Chief Executive Officer at Badia Farms said: “Classic Fine Foods is a company that shares our values for quality food, grown using the most sustainable and eco-friendly practices. We have received incredible feedback from chefs so far, who are extremely passionate about our products and our methods – that can’t be matched with imported produce.
“We have started a new wave of farming technology in the region, with a vision to shape the future of how we grow our food. We are delighted that through this partnership we are able to deliver our leafy greens to more chefs’ tables across the UAE.”
