Red Sea Farms, a Saudi AgTech that enables commercial farming in harsh environments globally, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SAUDIA, the national flag carrier of Saudi Arabia.
The new partnership will provide SAUDIA guests with sustainable, high-quality, locally-sourced meal options both in-flight and at airport lounges and lowering food miles by replacing imports.
The partnership with SAUDIA will assist the airline in achieving its goal of becoming an industry leader in sustainability, and continually improving its environmental performance.
“Sourcing from sustainable fruit and vegetables makes a significant environmental impact. If all tomatoes consumed annually in Saudi Arabia were grown with our cooling technology, 80,500 tons of CO2 emissions would be saved; the equivalent of over 3,000 flights from Riyadh to Dubai,” Simon Roopchand, Chief Executive Officer of Red Sea Farms Middle East, said.
