ABU DHABI, 25th July, 2020 (WAM) — The Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority announced that the electronic “Forage Market for Livestock Breeders” service, which was activated for beneficiaries in early July, achieved great success during the first two weeks since its launch, in cooperation with the government-run Tamm platform, as the market witnessed a great turnout from livestock breeders to obtain their needs of feed of the highest quality and best prices.
The number of visitors to the feed market service through the “Tamm platform” during this period amounted to more than 60,000 visitors, and more than 37,000 transactions were completed, while the total sales during this period amounted to more than 97 million dirhams, and the total amount of feed sold was more than 59 thousand tons.
And as of July 1, 2023, the feed market began providing its services as a first stage to beneficiaries registered with the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority.
The feed market, which serves about 40,000 breeders nationwide, and meets the needs of more than 5 million heads of livestock, is the first of its kind and the largest in the Middle East, and contributes to linking feed buyers from all emirates with suppliers approved by the authority.
The Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority had launched the “Forage Market” at the end of last May, with the aim of providing forage of the highest quality and best prices, in addition to providing safe and sustainable solutions that help local feed companies to access the markets.
The market is linked to a group of regular markets located near Al-Azab, in addition to an electronic platform for fodder trading available to all companies at the state level.
The Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority seeks to mobilize resources, capabilities and energies and develop initiatives that aim to enable sustainable food production. The “Forage Market” is one of the important initiatives to regulate feed trade in the country by combining physical markets with electronic trading.
