DUBAI: Dubai Economy is organising workshops and site visits to monitor implementation of the new standards introduced for licensing groceries as part of establishing a unified brand identity for the shops in line with international standards.

The initiative is aimed to support grocery owners comply with the guidelines introduced to promote competitiveness, and quality of customer service.

The new standards cover the infrastructural and operational aspects of stores and include unified logo, brand identity, colour scheme, signage, exterior as well as interior finishes and appearance, fixtures and display units, storage area and lighting, among others. The store must fully satisfy the conditions laid down by the Dubai Municipality Department of Public Health and Safety with regard to the layout, supply and classification of goods, training, storage, health and hygiene, smoking and prohibited animals.

Omar Al Meheiri, Director of Development and Follow-up, Business Registration and Licensing Sector, said, “By introducing the new standards for groceries, Dubai Economy aims to reinforce the emirate’s reputation as the best regional and global destination for shopping and retailing in general. It’s part of enhancing overall competitiveness in Dubai.”

Al Meheiri added that Dubai Economy had started a series of visits to groceries in the emirate in 2017 itself, explaining the new standards to grocery owners and ensuring their commitment to implementing them in right earnest.
