Food AL grease & GCC’s Halal economy
A closer look on how the grease industry can benefit from this rising market trend
Did you know that the Halal food import by GCC countries is foreseen to reach US$53.1 billion by 2020?
Why does this matter?
It matters because increased consumption caused by key factors like population growth or higher per capita income opens doors of opportunities to businesses such as food processing and packaging.
Will these industries affect the bearing companies?
Definitely, they will.
Companies such as these use equipment or machinery to meet their production targets as well as manufacturing health and safety requirements. Hence, with continuous use, bearing replacement or re-lubrication may be deemed necessary.
Facts and Figures in UAE:
- Al Quoz Abattoir opened early this year to process about 1,550 animals daily using modern slaughterhouse machinery.
- Mergham Abattoir is likewise set to open this year
- Sales of locally manufactured Halal pharmaceuticals and cosmetics is forecasted to grow from AED9.6 billion in 2016 to AED13 billion by 2020.
To ensure productivity, it’s best to look for a quality lubrication solution for these industrial applications and a trusted supplier that offers local support.
Look for NSF-H1
According to Machinery Lubrication magazine, H1 grease types are suitable for food processing and drug industries due to their increased resistance to chemicals, steam, ability to dissolve sugars, and most importantly, compliance to international health and safety regulations.
