F&B Flourishes at Ajman Free Zone

The food and beverages (F&B) sector at the Ajman Free Zone (AFZ) has in 2021 recorded a significant 10 per cent growth in the number of registered companies compared to 2020. 

Furthermore, the business hub experienced a positive year with more than 370 registered businesses in the F&B sector – reinforcing the free zone’s appeal to companies wishing to establish and expand operations throughout the region.

AFZ continues to build on its track record as the region’s trusted hub for the F&B sector, with the new results boosting confidence among foreign investors and other F&B firms that avail the free zone’s wide range of facilities and services. The integrated hub is among the leading free zones that continue to attract local, regional, and global F&B companies seeking to grow their presence in the country. 

AFZ’s value-added packages and incentives have also helped companies set up their businesses with ease and take advantage of its competitive features, including the free zone’s strategic location, cost-efficient solutions, state-of-the-art facilities and simplified business setup processes. Sheikh Ahmed bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Ajman Free Zones, said: “The F&B sector has been integral to our success, especially considering its rapid growth in the country. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have constantly focused on safeguarding the UAE’s food supply chain through our multimodal logistics hub.
