As an industry leader in the Middle East for premium and specialty labelling and packaging solutions, Kimoha Entrepreneurs FZCO was established in 1988. The company dabbles in several market categories including cosmetics, perfumes, lubricants, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, aviation, retail and logistics, and garments. Apart from supplying clients with specialty labelling solutions, it also has additional divisions such as paper and AIDC that complement the main business, reaffirming its status as a “one-stop solution” for its discerning clientele.
Kimoha’s dedication to the environment and the community has always prompted it to seek out greener and safer alternatives in all aspects of its operations. Presently, the company operates from its state-of-the-art facility spread over an area of 20,000 square metres. With a solar power generating capacity of 1,000 KW, the facility uses green energy to meet 37 percent of its overall energy demands. Furthermore, no ketones or solvents are used in any of the printing processes at the facility.
Vinesh Bhimani, Managing Director of Kimoha said, “Green measures such as solar electricity, waste management, LED lighting, and no solvents in the manufacturing plant set us apart from our competitors. In addition, as staunch supporters of the circular economy, we encourage our customers to use environment-friendly materials and products.”

The current situation has created more awareness on health and hygiene among consumers and hence the need for new trends and technologies.
Elaborating on the newest technologically advanced developments at Kimoha, Bhimani explained, “On the 7th of June 2021, we completed the installation of our new RFID Smart Label production plant, the first of its type in the GCC. Electromagnetic fields are used in radio-frequency identification to automatically detect, and track tags affixed to items, in order to ensure closer and more secure monitoring of items by its owners. By setting up this facility, we hope to be able to meet the RFID needs of clients not only in the UAE, but also around the world. We also launched Eezeetags that are specially designed for self-service Bag Drop operations to be used in the aviation, leisure and hospitality sectors. This is going to help the airline industry improve its operations.”
