About Abu Dhabi Farmers Services

Our Core Business

We work with local farmers to improve farming practices, resulting in higher production levels and better quality crops while conserving the country’s environmental resources. In turn, we partner with retailers and large corporate and government customers to provide them with a secure supply of quality local produce fresh from the farms.

Working closely with retailers allows us to learn consumer demands and current supply trends. This knowledge means we can effectively collaborate with farmers to make sure that the industry grows the right quantities of the right food – without the need for subsidies. Essentially, we offer a full suite of services – from field to market – as we work to develop sustainable agriculture for Abu Dhabi.
