Abu Dhabi: The Zayed Higher Organisation for People of Determination (ZHO) has launched a cheese factory at the ZHO’s People of Determination Production Centre in the Al Bahia area of Abu Dhabi, with the “Made in the UAE” slogan.
The move is aimed at meeting the daily production requirements of various dairy products, storing goat milk for later production, and facilitating production processes using advanced programming.
The project seeks to empower students of professional disciplines in development projects in Abu Dhabi. It will be carried out by five national students with different disciplines at the Abu Dhabi Institute for Vocational Education and Training (ADVETI) and a trainer from ZHO’s teaching staff.
The factory’s establishment took more than three years. It started with the establishment of a cheese manufacturing unit in ZHO, within the vocational and agricultural rehabilitation projects, by honing the skills of ZHO’s members in the manufacture of cheese and local products.
ZHO’s Secretary-General Mr. Abdullah Al Humaidan expressed his extreme pleasure with the successful steps achieved and referred to the launch as the realisation of the dream of establishing the factory as an economic entity contributing to the empowerment of people of determination.
Mr. Al Humaidan further emphasised the organisation’s endless keenness to support and develop the capabilities of its children of determination to make them productive people in society with a core role in development, as well as to encourage all institutions to activate their role in empowering and rehabilitating people of determination.
Mr. Saeed Al Bahri Salem Al Ameri, Director General of Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA), commented that “ZHO provides outstanding services for people of determination. We are pleased to be their partner in providing these services, as we are proud to support this excellent project by qualifying and training workers in the factory to meet food safety requirements.”
