Al Khat Packaging’s subsidiary, Gulf Printing and Packaging, has started work on its new factory in Abu Dhabi’s Kizad free zone area. The company is the only approved provider of packaging materials for McDonalds and other leading brands in the Middle East and this will be Khat’s first production plant outside Kuwait. The factory will further expand the company’s manufacturing capacity to meet the requirements of various supply contracts covering the region.
Located in Kizad’s “mixed use” cluster, the facility will produce folding paper packaging and printing products, especially for the UAE, Saudi Arabian and South African markets. Mohamed Abou Khalid, general manager of Al Khat said that with excellent multi-modal connectivity and Khalifa port close by, Kizad was the deal location for this investment.
