March 27 2014 Almarai further expands with Meyn-Ishida

Almarai is the world’s largest vertically integrated dairy company and the largest bakery company in Saudi, with a flawless reputation and a clear vision: to provide quality, nutritious food and beverages that enrich their consumers’ lives every day. In 2010, Almarai launched a new poultry brand, Alyoum which includes a wide choice of fresh poultry products including whole birds and a selection of cuts packed in fully sealed trays to ensure the highest hygiene standards.

In 2009, they purchased HADCO in Hail, which already ordered a complete 12,000 birds per hour Meyn plant. Immediately, they expanded by adding a complete second line. Seeing the increasing demand for high quality poultry products in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and some of the Gulf States, Almarai decided to further expand their processing capacity by adding another complete Meyn-Ishida line in 2013.

The highly impressive processing plant with all lines installed will become one of the largest single output plants in the world. It is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment from Meyn all completely integrated with the Ishida solutions for grading, batching and packing.
