Agrotop to expand activities in the UAE, following new peace agreement with Israel
At 9:55 in the morning on Monday 17th August, just three days after the first announcement of normalization between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). We in Agrotop received a phone call. The screen showed the number was from +971, meaning that this is a direct incoming call from Abu Dhabi.
All direct phone communication with Israel in Abu Dhabi had been blocked in the past as is the case in most of the Arab world (including Jordan who has peace treaty with Israel).
This small step shows how serious and well-founded is the coming peace agreement between Israel and the UAE. Practical steps are being undertaken immediately without waiting for the formal treaty.

Agrotop has previous experience in projects in the UAE when these had to be disguised and the origin of materials not acknowledged. We regard the connection between Israeli agricultural high-tech and the Gulf States as an area of opportunity and now we will allocate even more resources on developing this market.
Agrotop has built in Abu Dhabi desert, in harsh weather conditions of extreme hot, cold and sandstorms, a European standard broiler project that grows 170,000 birds.
In the middle of the Abu Dhabi desert, reaching +50°C (122°F) during the day and 0°C (32°F) during the night, Agrotop established six broiler houses that grow 170,000 birds.
The houses were engineered by Agrotop to keep a constant temperature within them despite the extreme weather and have a unique storm hood installed to prevent cooling pads blocking by the harsh sandstorms. The project was built adhering to European regulations.
Agrotop is looking for potential distributors and representatives and investors in this area.
