Dubai — Emirates Modern Poultry Company, also known as Al Rawdah, has announced the launch of a new plant to double its monthly production capacity of processed items from 400 to 800 tonnes.

Al Rawdah’s expansion, which will see a new plant fully ready and operational in eight to 12 months, will help the leading poultry company address the current gap between demand and supply.

The announcement was made during Gulfood 2015.

Phase one of the expansion, which comprises six new cold stores that add an additional 300 tonnes of storage at a cost of Dh5.5 million is already complete. Phase two, which will see the production facility expand to double output, is expected to reach completion by the end of 2015 at a cost of Dh15 million.

The new plant, which is 40 per cent larger than the current one in terms of area, will see Al Rawdah enter the first quarter of 2016 with a monthly production capacity of 800 tonnes of processed items.

The fast-tracked expansion comes on the heels of unprecedented market demand for Al Rawdah products, which have led the company to operate at absolutely full capacity.
