Barakat unveils new biodegradable packaging


October 27, 2022 | By RetailME Bureau

UAE’s fresh produce brand Barakat has launched bio-degradable packaging across its entire product range, taking a big step into the world of sustainability.

Barakat’s new packaging contains an organic compound that degrades 90% faster in landfills than regular plastic and biodegrades 30% in just the first year, leaving behind nutrient-rich soil instead of microplastic waste.

“Taking care of our community has always been at the heart of everything we create – that means taking care of our environment to ensure a better life for us, and the generations to come,” said Rashid Mohamed Alabbar, Board Member at Barakat.

“Barakat’s new packaging is the result of our hard work and research and is our innovative solution that fits the UAE’s current sustainable initiatives and landfill situations. We understand that our consumers care about the planet – we hope this packaging helps them make a difference every time they choose Barakat.”
