Urban Foods

Enhancing the retail shopping experience with a wider access to goods and products in the UAE. We continue to proactively expand our commitment to our communities with a personalised urban shopping experience.

Personalised Retail Shopping Experience 

Through its strategic partnership with Meraas, Dubai Holding takes a further step into the consumer retail industry with the introduction of Urban Foods, a grocery and household retail supermarkets and hypermarkets company. This new venture aims to enhance consumers’ shopping experience by launching personalised retail concepts adapted to the unique needs of communities in Dubai and across the UAE.

Urban Foods will bring established brands such as Geant, as well as new brands including Franprix and Monoprix, to communities in the UAE with stores measuring up to 10,000 square metres in size. Every retail store launched by Urban Foods will promote a positive and cohesive community lifestyle through revamping the in-store shopping experience, while providing an engaging, convenient and educational retail environment to various residential and commercial communities.

Urban Foods will distinguish itself by its customer-centric approach to every-day shopping, which is underpinned by robust data-analytics that aim to understand consumers’ requirements and deliver a tailored shopping environment.

At Dubai Holding, we understand the importance of building cohesive communities. It is an important pillar of our culture, a key contributor to our happiness and an essential component in bringing people together. With this philosophy in mind, Dubai Holding, Meraas and Urban Foods look forward to this new addition to the retail industry and to shaping the future landscape of consumer shopping in Dubai.
