The breakthrough which Mr. Lootah and his team had been waiting for, came in 1979 with the opening of a hypermarket in Mirdif, which would serve as a model for all future outlets. In 2017, Al Islami Foods has inaugurated the largest food manufacturing factory for the brand. Spread across 10,000 square meters, it is the most modern, complementing the existing logistics facility in Dubai Investment Park, expected to increase the production capacity by 150% reaching 17,000 Mt per year.
