Using smart agriculture to grow clean, fresh food in the Emirates

Farm Fresh Harvest is the brainchild of Ashok Doshi, brought to life by Ibrahim Gadiwala and Arva Gadiwala, full-time parents, company executives, and now business owners. The company was born from a passion for agriculture and farming, especially hydroponic farming.

What started as a small award-winning food garden on the Gadiwalas’ balcony now operates out of two separate farms in Ras Al Khaimah. "Already one of the largest farms in the region, we are still actively expanding our facilities. We have found a happy balance of the use of knowledge, technology, and most importantly the one abundant resource in the region, 365 days of sunlight. There is a daily harvest of over two tonnes of greens, which is shipped to the vegetable market, and our loyal buyers include top supermarket chains, renowned cloud kitchens, and bespoke restaurants all over the country," the Farm Fresh Harvest states.

Co-Founder and mentor Ashok Doshi says: “Give me the scalding sun, arid desert, and seawater, and I can show you that we can still create a green paradise.” On the one hand, this is a simple collaboration of the available technology and resources in the region, but it is also an experiment to address the matter of food security.
