ABU DHABI / WAM
Abu Dhabi based investment company (Sanad AD) on Wednesday announced a minority investment in local food and beverage company, Slices.
The strategic new partnership is expected to help Slices in its continuing crusade to provide wholesome, nutritious meals within the education sector, across schools in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai and Sharjah —improving the health of the next generation by reversing the rise of chronic life-style diseases such as diabetes. The company received initial funding support from the Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development (KFED).
