Our Story

The genesis of Barakat dates to 1976 with our humble beginnings in the trade of fresh vegetables and fruits. With decades of experience in sustaining the vibrant international sourcing network for fruits and vegetables of the highest quality standards from the best farms all around the world, we strive to be the most trusted source of healthy food in the UAE

We are a strategic supplier of fresh produce to 5-star hotels, leading supermarket chains, major airline catering companies, prominent families, and other premium entities. We value our longstanding and excellent relations with most hospitality and retail sector partners in the UAE and ensure the varied needs of each customer are consistently met. After establishing the edge on fresh fruits & vegetables, Barakat has ventured into value-added fruits & vegetables, with the manufacturing unit for cut fruits & vegetables and fresh juices to provide value by saving time and cost for Hospitality and Catering customers

Barakat means ‘Blessings’ or ‘Prosperity’ in Arabic. We measure ourselves in terms of the customer delight delivered, staying true to our values of quality, compassion, and innovation

Quality is at the heart of Barakat – accredited with FSSC 22000, ISO 22000/ISO 9001, HACCP, HALAL, Kosher Certified
