Elite Agro LLC, the leading agriculture company in the United Arab Emirates, with large-scale integrated farming operations, joins the GLOBALG.A.P. Community as a member.

Established in the UAE in 2010 as an independent business unit, Elite Agro was set up as a corporate farming business with a vision of promoting self-reliance and food security in the surrounding society and the wider region via new benchmarks in the production of high quality and safe agricultural products. The company has since adopted a structured approach that has allowed it to move into the world of corporate farming swiftly and professionally by combining top local management with international technical expertise. The result is a small team of professionals who manage the largest farm and largest potato farm today in the UAE.

Elite Agro’s sustainable agriculture policy is designed to contribute to environmental health, economic profitability and social equity. “Stewardship of both natural and human resources is of prime importance to us,” said Saeed Al Bahri, Managing Director of Elite Agro LLC. “It is crucial to realize that each small decision we take makes a big difference and helps move the whole system toward sustainable agriculture. Our key to moving forward is the will to take the next step and keep diversifying our products, which increases both our economic and ecological resilience. The efficient management of every product is our aim,” he said.

Food safety is a high priority on all Elite Agro farms. Consumer and buyer confidence in Elite Agro products is further enhanced by its safety program for the prevention of any kind of contamination risk.   Its GLOBALG.A.P., BRC, HACCP and ISO 22000 certifications are proof of its investment in all steps required to guarantee the very high quality and safety of its products.

Elite Agro LLC has expertise in arid land agriculture, and manages a world class portfolio of integrated agribusinesses producing quality products for customers across the UAE and Middle East. The company’s experience in large-scale farming makes it an ideal go-to specialist for clients seeking business opportunities in agriculture. Elite Agro provides tailored support in the domains of farm development, farm management, irrigation consultancy, pre- or post-harvest management and any other farming-related services.

Currently the company employs a staff of more than 200 skilled professionals in two independent operational divisions in the UAE: The Open-Field Farming division, which is responsible for the production of cereals, and the Fruits & Vegetable Farming division, which is responsible for the production, distribution and marketing of several international varieties of fruits & vegetables that are graded, sorted and packaged at in-house facilities.
