Dubai: Emirati cuisine is just a few taps away on your smartphone.
The talabat food order and delivery platform has signed with the Ras Al Khaimah Economic Development Department to feature homemade meals on the portal. This is part of the emirate’s efforts to support the emirates’ home projects and will allow “Al Ghad” license holders to display and sell food via talabat.
“By signing a memorandum of understanding with talabat, RAK DED is forging stronger partnerships with private entities in order to improve the ease of doing business and support entrepreneurs and home business owners in the F&B sector,” said Mohammed Mahmood Mohammed Al Mahmood , assistant to general manager, Head of Business Development at RAK DED.
Obtain an Al Ghad license
The license can be obtained via the Ras Al Khaimah government website by using the license holder’s UAE PASS to log in.
Applicants can select the services of the Department of Economic Development and follow the steps provided on the website.
This license is a home license issued to UAE citizens in Ras Al Khaimah who are over the age of 18, which allows them to do business from home.
Al Ghad license applicants should not have previous commercial licenses as it should be their first project. Recruiting is not permitted under this license.
How can it be done?
Under this MoU, talabat will grant benefits to Al Ghad license holders, including free registration fee, a free smart tablet, photo sessions for up to 40 menu items, one month of free delivery. and a free renewal fee for another year. Home business owners can join talabat by sharing RAK DED’s “Al-Ghad” license holders with the talabat team via email. Once the account is ready, talabat will send a technician to train the trader on the system before the account is activated.
