As one of the pioneers in the food sector in the Middle East and due to the fact that the food industry is one of the largest and the most energy-consuming industry in the world, Al-Hazaa Investment Group saw the importance of using sustainable energy in their production and therefore started the power plant project. Not only in food production but also all the facilities owned by the group operate depending on clean energy, having more than seven factories in Jordan alone, this step has been seen as a necessity because of the fossil fuels negative effects on the environment. The group took upon itself the responsibility of increasing efficiency and reducing energy consumption while replacing it to use clean sustainable resources.
The power plant project was one of the strategic plans of Al-Hazaa Investment Group because sustainability and environmental responsibility are the core value of the Group and building the Renewable Energy power plant enabled it to be the first investment group in Jordan that produces flour depending on solar power, making Al-Hazaa group’s flour and food production in Jordan 100% sustainable and eco-friendly.
The Group owns 3 flour mills in Jordan located in different areas of Amman, in addition to the only noodles factory in Jordan and a pasta factory. The group mills’ market share represents 55% of flour sales in the country.
Al-Hazaa Investment Group is in the process of operating a new flour Mill in Aqaba. This step comes in compliance with the vision of the Group’s CEO, Mr. Jamal Al-Hazaa, which is to be present on the main seaports of the Middle East on the Red Sea, Arabian Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, as the Group has different flour mills in five countries in the Middle East, this will increase the Group’s competitiveness and will help it in covering the growing flour demand in the MENA region while taking into account sustainability and the environmental impacts of the group’s businesses.
We manufacture food depending on clean energy, which in our opinion is mutually beneficial for us as food producers, for the environment, for our country and for our customers, having an eco-friendly production is definitely an advantage for Al-Hazaa Group and the environment as well, we produce all our food and flour products without overlooking sustainability. Jordan is considered one of the developing countries in the world and having such project that enables Al-Hazaa Investment Group to operate depending on green energy is so important to conserve the countries natural resources and provide services and products to its citizens without affecting the environment. The Group is very proud of this step and hopes to implement more similar projects in Jordan and other countries in which it operates in.
