The venture will start distributing its sous vide products to customers, which include airlines, restaurants and hospitality providers, in the UAE from this month. In will then start manufacturing food at a Dubai facility that is expected to be operational in 2022.

Emirates Flight Catering, a division of the Emirates Group, said that the partnership with Cuisine Solutions will allow the venture to grow and provide quality products to the hospitality industry.
