Between 500 and 700 tonnes of food products, including fresh fruits and vegetables, gourmet ice cream, and cheese, are transported by Emirates SkyCargo on a daily basis. The cargo division of Emirates Airlines has been delivering a new delicacy from the United Arab Emirates to some of Moscow’s most prestigious restaurants for the past year.
In the sparkling blue waters of Dibba Bay in the UAE’s Fujairah emirate, Dibba Bay Oysters has been growing premium oysters since 2016, harvesting around 200,000 oysters per month and looking to grow exponentially in the coming years. An edible oyster species was pioneered by its founder, Ramie Murray, the first shellfish farm to be established in this region. Emirates SkyCargo has been facilitating the export of Dibba Bay oysters to Russia.
“Emirates SkyCargo is pleased to assist in the delivery of this premium UAE-grown product to some of the most discerning oyster connoisseurs in international markets like Russia,” the airline said in a statement. When it comes to delivering perishable foodstuffs from the farm to your table in a timely and temperature-controlled manner, air cargo connectivity is critical. If you’re in Moscow, you can get your hands on fresh oysters from Dibba Bay Oysters that very day. “We look forward to supporting Dibba Bay Oysters and other UAE-based and international SMEs in their international expansion plans over the years to come,” said Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo, in a press release.
