The agreement was signed between The Chairman of Muscat Municipality – Eng. Isam Saud al – Zedjali, and the CEO of Khazeen – Eng. Salim Sulaiman al – Dhuhli.

Commenting on the agreement, Eng. Al-Zedjali opined that such an agreement will help in not only setting up the Food City component of Khazeen but, will enable improved utilization of existing infrastructure. In addition, Eng. Al-Zedjali also noted, the utility of Khazeen as a major logistics hub to amend the quality and performance of the sector.

This whole setup will come at a cost of RO 43 Million and occupy 800,000 m2 of land, effectively tripling the size of the existing market in Muscat.
