If you are in the GCC, you sure would have tasted Almarai products. Almarai is the largest integrated dairy foods company in the world. The name derives from the Arabic word for Pasture. As the slogan goes “Quality You can Trust”, this renowned company that is headquartered in Riyadh provides nutritious food and beverages that enrich the daily lives of us consumers.

The production line comprises a wide variety of products the whole family can enjoy! These include Dairy liquids, Yoghurts, Desserts, Juices, Bakery, Poultry, Food and Infant formula milk powder.

The company, also known for supporting community organizations and charities offers excellent opportunities for prospective employees.

For your Information, Almarai even organize visits to their Farm and Factories. Get ready for a long drive! It’s located in Al Kharj, some 100 kms from the capital of Riyadh and yeah, what you finally get to see there is just remarkable!

Here are few of the farm and factory shots I captured during my visit.

The tour showcased state-of-the-art facilities.

The equipment’s, presentation, maintenance and the care taken to manufacture each product leaves one in awe!

Again, In addition to the processing plants Almarai has the largest and most technologically advanced dairy farms in the region, and is acclaimed as the first dairy farm in the world to receive the ISO 9002 award!

These black-and-white splotched Holstein beauties produce an average of more than 13,000 liters of milk every year which is almost double the yield of the Jersey cattle favored by European dairies.

A number tag is affixed to the ear of each cow which is scanned by computerized systems as they enter the milking parlor. The milking is then done fully automatically and under extreme hygienic conditions.

Not to mention, the high yielding cows are sheltered beneath open sided metallic sheds where misting sprays and fans are used to control the heat and moisture constantly. One has to agree that the care taken to maintain these farms in the middle of the scorching dessert is simply spectacular!

All in all no doubt, made to the highest quality standards and always deliciously fresh, Almarai products are the Best and I’m glad to have witnessed the whole scene behind! For those of you interested in touring Almarai, click here to register!
