Pankaj Gupta, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, GII

GreenCorp has acquired Emad Bakeries, a Jeddah-based producer of Arabic breads and pastries, in a strategic move that strengthens GreenCorp’s food-focused investment platform.

Emad Bakeries operates one of the largest industrial fresh flatbread bakery in western Saudi Arabia. This additional investment empowers Emad Bakeries’ plan to extend its operation and expertise.

Incorporating Emad Bakeries into the GreenCorp portfolio represents a significant step for GreenCorp’s food production and processing investment platform backed by Gulf Islamic Investments (GII), an alternative investment firm with over US$4.5 billion of assets under management (AUM).

Green Corp’s mandate is to invest in high-growth, demand-driven, scalable and sustainable food businesses across GCC, creating an integrated food platform across the food value chain to derive sustainable benefits for consumers, and to reduce food import dependency.

The strategic acquisition of Emad Bakeries boosts GreenCorp’s investments in food processing operations, adding to the recent expansion of its controlled environment agriculture company Badia Farms in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain.  The addition of Emad Bakeries brings fast-growing food production capabilities as a crucial component of the GreenCorp food-related investment platform.

“Acquiring Emad Bakeries represents a significant step forward in our growth strategy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We are confident that Emad Bakeries’ heritage and commitment to quality will resonate deeply with our customers in Saudi Arabia,” commented Mohammed Alhassan, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of GII.

“Adding Emad Bakeries to Green Corp’s managed portfolio is a strategic move that aligns perfectly our vision of establishing GreenCorp as a comprehensive GCC food investment platform, encompassing the entire nutritional value chain, and enhancing Gulf food security. We aim to make further acquisitions in the Kingdom, as we build Green Corp’s asset portfolio,” added Pankaj Gupta, fellow Co-Founder and Co-CEO of GII.
