A fresh market in Dubai’s Ras Al Khor area ran the first ever display of Israeli produce in the UAE on Saturday.

The move comes weeks after UAE parliament ratified the historic Israel–United Arab Emirates normalization agreement. Both the countries pledged to undertake reciprocal initiatives to establish diplomatic and business links, promote investment and tourism and launch direct flights connecting Israel and UAE. The agreement was ratified on October 19.

Shlomi Fogel, Chairman of Carmel Agrexco, one of Israel’s largest exporters of agricultural produce was present at the event and expressed his delight over the initiative.

“We are excited to be part of the growing ties between Israel and the UAE. Together with our colleagues in Dubai, we are beginning to see the ‘fruits of peace’ today. It’s a fact that Israeli agriculture is highly advanced and we are confident that everyone will enjoy our produce,” Fogel said.

He added that the firm intends to invest in agricultural farms in the UAE, incorporating the latest innovations in agro-technology.

The Fresh Market located on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed road, near Dragon Mart is operated by the Dubai Municipality. The market has played a key role in raising Dubai’s position as a regional hub for the trading & sale of local & imported produce.
