We have enjoyed continued success and have made great strides in the field of meat and dairy products that has solidified our name and reputation while benefiting the economy of Ras Al Khaimah and the UAE.
Despite the extraordinary challenges faced during the financial crisis, the Board of Directors succeeded in moving the company to new horizons in line with the vision of the UAE and its economy.
