The GCC’s first commercial vertical indoor farm, Badia Farms, has partnered with Classic Fine Foods to deliver local, fresh and chemical-free leafy greens from farm to fork within hours.
This partnership will extend the farm’s reach to restaurants and HoReCa trade across the UAE.
Badia Farms, which was officially inaugurated March 1, 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 CEO 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.”
