Food packaging company Al Bayader International has announced the installation of two thermoforming machines in a bid to increase production capacity and maintain the high HACCP food-safe rating.
According to the UAE-based firm, each machine will increase the capacity by seven tons a day per machine and add a 25% increase in the total capacity of the plant, which currently has overall capacity of 55t a day.
Al Bayader International group CEO Nidal Haddad said during July and August food consumption is expected to increase and factors such as hygiene and safety are of importance to the consuming public health.
"The industry needs to be geared up to keep up with capacity needs to avoid any shortage in the necessary consumer goods due to the high demand," Haddad added.
Al Bayader product range varies from soufras to containers, dessert cups to doilies, party products to aluminum foils and cling films.
