Emirates Flight Catering fully acquires Bustanica

Emirates Flight Catering has fully acquired Bustanica, the world’s largest indoor vertical farm, making this innovative agriculture venture 100 per cent UAE-owned.

The acquisition empowers Emirates Bustanica to leverage its local expertise and the latest tech know-how to meet the growing demands of the market, and enhance the country's food and water security.

Located near Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central, Bustanica’s 330,000 sq ft facility has the capacity to grow more than 1 million kilograms of exceptional quality leafy greens a year, equivalent to 3 tonnes daily, while using 95 per cent less water than conventional agriculture.

Operating under the brand name Bustanica, the produce is available across all major retailers in the UAE such as Spinney's, Waitrose, Carrefour, and Choithrams.

Customers on Emirates and other airlines enjoy this farm-fresh produce in their salads and meals.

Since its launch in July 2022, Bustanica has become a part of UAE’s dinner table conversations, thanks to its growing range of leafy greens, herbs and microgreens that can and should be eaten straight out of the box – even tap water can contaminate the produce. Bustanica’s produce is grown without pesticides or herbicides, and is 100 percent clean, fresh, and nutrient-rich. Bustanica produces a variety of lettuce, spinach, parsley, and kale.
