The National Food Product Company recently, silver sponsored the biggest mosaic Emirati Flag campaign. The outstanding piece of the mosaic was added to the Guinness World Records under “Nefsy’s” initiative during the 49th National Day of the United Arab Emirates. The campaign was conducted in collaboration with Emirati Red Crescent, the Government of Dubai, and the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department. The initiative aimed at providing support due to the spread of COVID 19 and the reduction of the pandemic’s social and economic impact, through allocation of the families in need.
