Al Ghurair Foods, the leading foods businesses in the UAE, has earned the 'Best Health Education' accolade at Gulfood Awards in a spectacular gala dinner held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre last night (Sunday) to announce the winners of the Gulfood awards.

"We are elated to win this recognition, which is due to the steadfast conviction of the Al Ghurair Foods' company's consistent commitment to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for all to follow", said Abdullah Essa Al Ghurair from the Marketing team at Al Ghurair Foods. Entries were judged by a panel of highly distinguished and highly discerning international judges as participating companies vied for category titles.

Early October 2010, Al Ghurair Foods in partnership with Dubai Cares joined hands together to promote the School Feeding Campaign. This campaign aimed to provide children in developing countries with access to quality primary education whilst providing a healthy nutritious meal.

Also added Mohammed Essa Al Ghurair, Head of Oils Business at Al Ghurair Foods, "We hope this initiative will serve to help the UAE community understand the need to support the School Feeding Campaign which will help us give children access to primary education globally".

Prioritized by the United Nations as an urgent issue for school-age child, the school feeding campaign is a more impactful way in which Al Ghurair Foods could support the Dubai Cares initiative to provide a daily nutritious meal at schools thereby offering parents a strong incentive to send their children to school and keep them there.

The results have been truly outstanding. In schools where the school feeding program has been

implemented, enrollments increased by 28% for girls and 22% for boys. Overall, the school feeding program contributes to a child's learning and enhances cognitive abilities.
