Arpal Gulf announces today an official partnership with Specifico & Co, a leading Middle Eastern food and personal safety solutions provider, to compliment it’s cleaning and disinfection package for the UAE’s growing food business operator sector.

Specifico & Co is firmly rooted to the food safety movement and is committed to helping food businesses such as hotels, restaurants, school cafeterias, hospitals and catering companies stay compliant with the local and international food safety rules and regulations.

Alastair Leith, Operations Manager for Arpal Gulf says, “We are delighted to be partnering with Specifico & Co as our mutual clients can now benefit from their well-established expertise in the field of Food Safety Training & Consulting as well as their range of Food and Personal safety products and solutions.”

The UAE eating-out market continues to be one of the strongest performing sectors of the UAE economy. With over 10,000 restaurants in Dubai alone, the UAE food and beverage sector is valued at $11 billion. Further rapid growth is expected with new outlets opening on the back of surging tourism numbers leading up to the 2020 World Expo. For the food service operator, poor hygiene standards can result in being ‘closed for business’; for the customer, serious illness; and for the UAE as a tourist destination, major reputational damage.

Alastair continues, “At Arpal Gulf, we work closely with a wide range of food operators throughout the region, in helping them keep their premises safe and clean. Our driving objective is simple – to support our customers in providing ‘clean food, served by clean people in a clean environment and this partnership enhances this philosophy.”

Elie Raad, Managing Partner of Specifico & Co. says, “This partnership can only help and improve overall hygiene standards of our mutual clients businesses. Both companies aim to help elevate standards to a level that will not only keep food business operators compliant to local and international regulations, but also help them maintain a loyal customer base and protect brand reputation. We have been part of the food safety industry for over a decade now, and we very much look forward to collaborating with a company like Arpal Gulf, long known for its great service and reputation in the market.”
