The Central Fruit and Vegetable Market (Silal) commenced trial operations at Khazaen Economic City on June 29, 2024. It serves as a national and international platform for the marketing, exporting, importing, and re-exporting of vegetables and fruits.

By providing a comprehensive infrastructure for the handling and distribution of vegetables and fruits, this market is set to play a crucial role in the development of the food industry in Khazaen Economic City.

Significantly, the Silal Central Market will also have a lasting impact on the food security sector. Its state-of-the-art facilities and services will not only benefit local farmers and businesses but also contribute to the overall growth and sustainability of the agricultural industry in the region.

Eng Salim bin Sulaiman al Thuhli, CEO of Khazaen Economic City, said: “Today marks a historic milestone in the development of Khazaen Economic City.
