Pizza has its origin from Italy and its suburbs. Pizza in its original form can only be like by people where such food item was first cooked up. However, as the food got recognition in other parts of the world, the companies who have outlets or franchises in other countries can up with a very good idea in order to make this product accessible worldwide. They modified and altered their pizza offering as per the local tastes and requirements. Before launching their outlets in other countries, they first read the customs, attitudes and preferences of the local people. They would make a complete analysis to get a profound understanding of the food preferences of a company. After that they would cook up or invent a slight modified or its form. They do this simply by adding local food tinge and by naming the product in resemblance with the local food items. This helped them gaining acceptance of local people easily and quickly.


These multinationals chains also came up initially with the idea of Food Order. They introduced a process whereby a simple calling up of a company bring the food of one’s choice to their doorstep and that too within a couple of minutes. Pizza delivery then started to take heap in all countries and according to a precise estimation, accounts for nearly half of the total revenue. This means the large sitting arrangements provided by such chains can only get them similar revenue with that of pizza home delivery. This process of delivering the required food at home also gained recognition because people felt that they get the same quality at home which they can enjoy at their outlets.


Soon the pizza producing industry got split and the ingredients that make up a pizza were independently started to produce. This was because of large demand of pizza around the world which made it impossible for the companies to produce all the ingredients for pizza all alone under a single place. This started a struggle between the pizza producing companies to get the best for their customers. Some companies even came up with a unique idea of providing an extra pizza free of cost as a penalty for making the delivery not on time. This shows the commitment towards quality and service that such pizza providers show. The public at large prefer to visit the place for having pizza instead of ordering at home. However, for offices, it is a norm to get it delivered. The flavors for pizza have continuously been evolved and new flavors are always on the list. There is a continuous upgrading to give the best to the customers. Another idea that has been evolved is to separate the franchises that offer only the ordering and delivery services. This way the delivery work is separated and this has increased in efficiency. The outlets that provide the dining facility are only concerned towards giving a good quality service to the visitors. On the other hand, the delivery outlets like china garden restaurant Dubai make sure that delivery is made on time.


The business of eating out at expensive and highly modern restaurants has been picking up momentum in this part of the world. The residents here often come up thronging at the late hours of the day and after getting free from the office work to these restaurants in the form of groups of families and friends and enjoy their dinner. In the supper or lunch time many companies for which people work provides complementary or reduced price food for their employees. However executives often keep themselves away from such in house food unless there is some special occasion for which some special dishes are prepared otherwise they resort to have food from good restaurants.  The cost that is incurred by the companies for providing subsidized food to their employees cannot be ignored as it contains some high cost items resulting in increase in expenditures and might cause a reason for the decline in the profitability of the company. The companies through this subsidized form of food provision give employees lunch at reduced rates. This system works in a certain way. The employees are provided with lunch on daily basis and at the end of the month a small sum is deducted from their salaries. Normally the cost of such food that is incurred to the employee is only twenty to thirty percent of the cost of food.


The provision of lunch to employees on subsidized basis comes with both benefits and disadvantages to them. The benefits being the taking up of lunch without causing extra charges for the employees as normally if they eat from any other commercial place outside the organization they will end up giving a huge slice of their salary on a monthly basis. The disadvantage of such subsidized form of food provision is that of the quality of the food. If lunch is bought from outside the office the quality depends upon the price you have paid. In case such food is eaten within the company the chefs and the catering work is outsourced to a certain person who only gives their services by preparing and getting the food done on the basis of monthly salary. The items required for preparing food like meat veggies and all other items are bought by the company. There is no margin for the food preparer unlike in commercial setups where a certain margin is obtained by increasing the prices of the food items and thereby recovering the cost of the material used. For many offices who do not offer subsidized food to their employees they are left with only two options. Either they can order the food or can go in personal to such restaurants. For delivery food Dubai has restaurants who offer quick services in this regard. At the time of placement of the order on phone the order taker gives an estimate of the time that is required to deliver the order. This time is usually comprised of several minutes and the order is served within half an hour. In cases where you are deputed to some remote areas, the problems may arise. In Dubai food delivery at remote areas is done only by large restaurants who own chain of several outlets. In abu dhabi food delivery at such outskirt areas take time much higher than the normal timing. Most of the restaurants like china garden restaurant Dubai even refuse to deliver order in such isolated regions.

The food industry has been growing ever since with the growth in population of the world, although in United Arab Emirates the demand has further increased for            inventive food items compared to other places in the world. Greater awareness of healthy and hygienic food and changing lifestyle is also having a great impact on the growth of the food sector in United Arab Emirates. Another reason for the food industry United Arab Emirates to prosper more than other places in the world is that there is very little agriculture here, and more than eighty percent of the food items are brought in by these food processing companies. Items like Baked, milk products, dry & processed food, confectionery,  Oils & fats, snacks, canned food, Sauces, Baby food, noodles, spreads, soft & energy drinks, frozen food, and readymade meals are some of the most commonly used food products, and are used in daily routine life. Dubai which is the financial capital of the United Arab Emirates also has a growing demand of food products and since the city receives a large number of tourists and visitor every the demand of beverage and food Dubai is continuously on the rise, especially processed pizza Abu Dhabi which is considerably in demand.

Most of the retail food items are sold thorough chain of super stores and marts like Lulu Hypermarket, Carrefour UAE, Spinneys, and many more. The demand of retail and processed food in Abu Dhabi has been meet importing more food products and also by increasing the processed food production for Abu Dhabi. It is due to this growing demand of food in United Arab Emirates that the food industry is getting more investments in this sector.


Sharjah is another state in the United Arab Emirates where the demand of retail and processed food has increased considerably.

Establishment of free zones in different areas of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah has also encourages investor in the food industry to invest in United Arab Emirates. Also policies and procedures have been made very easy for the business community interested in investing in the food sector to encourage further investments.
