Dairy and food derivatives industry is an essential component of the local industry and con-tributes to achieving food security and self-reliance. Local companies have many opportunities to support their development, as the future growth of the population in the UAE leads to an increase in consumption. The geographical proximity of production and the speed of supply assure high quality products for customers,” said Walid Abdel Malik, director of Business Registration Division in BRL.
