Go-Lokal, an independent online platform, is a Skyne initiative created to help UAE-based companies. Through the platform, consumers will be able to find and support local companies and entrepreneurs directly. With over 175 local brands already registered,
Go-Lokal is looking to become the central portal for UAE brands looking to connect with locally-focused consumers.
All brands are conveniently organized in different categories, covering for instance Food & Beverage, Fashion, Arts & Crafts, Health and Personal care and many more. Go-Lokal is also looking to raise the profile of hidden gem destinations across the UAE that residents and tourists can visit such as; Emirates Bio Farm, the largest private organic farm in the UAE, Hatta Honey, local specialist in honey production or Dibba Bay Oysters, the first home-grown oyster farm, and the bespoke Al Suwaidi Pearls Farm in RAK.
\"Over the last six months, across the world, brands have struggled to adapt to their changing environment. We wanted to find a way to help companies in the UAE through this difficult period by connecting them with their local communities and potential customers.
Increasingly, consumers want to support local over international brands. These past few months have really underscored that people are wanting to make sure that local business and entrepreneurs survive.\"
\"Our team has been in the UAE for many years, and together we felt the need to do something to help the local economy. Many great companies exist in the UAE, that deserve more attention. We are convinced that the community loves to discover the amazing range of local products and services UAE-based companies have to offer.\"
Dennis de Rond, founder of Skyne
The UAE has a very rich culture and heritage and continues to embrace innovation year on year. As a hub for local entrepreneurship, Go-Lokal, will be the platform connecting the local community with the local economy, giving everyone access to all the hidden gems in the UAE.
