​After four years of operations at Sharjah Airport International Free Zone (SAIF ZONE), Delta Food Industries has expanded by opening an AED 40 million dairy plant at the Free Zone in March this year. Speaking at the opening ceremony, Saud Salim Al Mazrouei, Director of SAIF ZONE and Hamriyah Free Zone Authority, said, "We welcome this new initiative of Delta Food Industries. It is pleasing to see more manufacturing units flocking to SAIF ZONE, which is surely a sign that we are progressing. I hope that this initiative will enable Delta Food to offer its products locally and regionally and expand its network."

According to Shiraz Osman, founder and Chairman of Delta Food Industries, "The new plant will manufacture evaporated milk and cream. The production machinery is the latest available in the industry and is capable of producing 250,000 cartons per month of evaporated milk and cream."

Currently, Delta Food Industries is the second largest food manufacturing company in the UAE. "We are capitalizing on the first four years of our operation at SAIF ZONE with our latest initiative, the dairy plant, which will see the enhancement of capacities as well as the range of products. We are now entering the next stage of our growth," he added.

Since 2012, Delta Food Industries has been manufacturing tomato paste, tomato ketchup, hot sauce, milk powder, custard powder, and oats, among other products. The company has a strong distribution network across 20 countries in the GCC, Middle East and the African region.

"SAIF ZONE is an ideal Middle East hub and we plan to increase our portfolio of products in two years' time," said Ali Parpinchi, Managing Director of Delta Food Industries.
