During Gulfood 2024 Exhibition in Dubai, Al Ain Water, Agthia’s flagship brand, signed several ​strategic partnerships to enhance sustainability in the UAE market, including an agreement with Alpha Flight Catering (Air Arabia) that will enable them to make a significant shift towards sustainability by completely shifting to Al Ain rPET bottles for their inflight consumption, airport lounges, crew and all other operations.

Another MOU that was signed with North Atlantic Research and Survey explores new market opportunities, like introducing Icelandic Glacier Water to the GCC region, in line with Agthia’s strategy of offering unique, premium products. Additionally, a partnership with the Dubai Horse Racing Club was sealed to fuel champions’ spirits for the next three years and consequently strengthens Al Ain Water’s presence in the sports sector.

Since its inception, the Group has prioritized innovation across its product offerings, strengthening its distinct and agile business model and solidifying its leadership position by expanding into value-added categories.
