Almarai Company's feed requirements to be fully met through imports
Saudi Arabia-based Almarai Company will develop an operational plan that will gradually ensure that Almarai's total requirements of animal feed stock, primarily alfafa hay for the company's cow herds, be imported from abroad.
The sourcing of these products will be either from the company's controlled facilities in the United States or Argentina or purchased abroad from third parties who can meet Almarai's rigorous quality standards.
This plan reaffirms the company's commitment to a sustainable operational model, aiming at protecting the Kingdom's natural resources. It is also a continuation of Almarai's announcement on Tadawul, dated March 1st 2011, regarding its commitment, now fully achieved, to import 100% of alfalfa feed required for exported dairy products, extending it to all its domestic and export sales of dairy products.
