Homesick Brits in Dubai will now be able to do their meat shop at Marks & Spencer.

The UK retail giant has launched its first range of meat and poultry across five Marks & Spencer Foodhalls across Dubai – Dubai Festival City, Marina Walk, Ibn Battuta, The Springs and Mall of the Emirates.

The range consists of beef and lamb from New Zealand, and chicken from the UK. According to M&S, all meat products will be fresh; not previously frozen.

“This is a terrific milestone for us, we are thrilled to be launching this new range to our customers having worked tirelessly for nearly three years to perfect the offering,” said Marks & Spencer MENA and Asia vice president Stephen Rayfield.

“We are confident we are offering customers some of the best value and quality fresh meat and poultry possible.”

As well as the Marks & Spencer department stores, there are two standalone M&S Food stores in Dubai – the first opened at Marina Walk in September 2017, and the second opened in The Springs Souk in July.
