Abu Dhabi sends five tonnes of dates to Saudi Arabia
Abu Dhabi, July 15 (IANS/WAM) Abu Dhabi has sent nearly five tonnes Khinaizi and Naghal dates to Jeddah and will also export dates to London for Muslims living there on the occasion of holy month of Ramadan.
The dates season is yet to begin in Saudi Arabia.
According to Abu Dhabi Farmers' Services Centre (ADFSC), it sent its first lot of nearly five tonnes to Jeddah July 12. In addition, the organisation will begin sending one-ton consignments every other day to London for the Muslim population preparing for Ramadan.
The first London export is scheduled for Monday July 16.
"The UAE hasn't exported fresh rotab dates before on such a large scale," said Chris Hirst, chief executive officer of ADFSC. "This initiative will open much-needed marketing channels for Abu Dhabi's farmers, both increasing and diversifying their income."
