Lebanon-based chocolatier Patchi has broken ground on a new manufacturing facility in Dubai that will also serve as the company’s headquarters for sales and marketing in the Gulf region.
Patchi said the 122,000 sq ft plant, under construction at the Dubai Industrial Park, will be its “largest manufacturing facility… to complement the company’s ongoing growth and business in the region and across the world”.
Oussama Choucair, the CEO of Patchi’s business in the United Arab Emirates, confirmed on Facebook work had started on the project.
The facility “will also house 3,000 sq m of warehouse space to facilitate fast and efficient deliveries of our chocolate products”, Patchi said.
The company said the new plant “will enable the production of different varieties of chocolates to cater to diverse market requirements”.
Patch’s product range includes luxury, boxed and loose chocolate, in addition to a no-added sugar line that is sweetened with maltitol and a range exclusively aimed at children.
