Qatari Dairy Exports First Batch of Products

29 March 2019

QATAR - In just 20 months after the blockade, Baladna Food Industries, Qatar’s largest producer of fresh dairy, has announced its first export of dairy products to Afghanistan. Qatar used to import nearly 98 percent of its dairy products before June 2017.

The company, established in 2016 with a production capacity of less than 50 tonnes, found itself facing a major challenge - one year after its establishment – due to the blockade imposed on Qatar in June 2017. This led to increasing its production to 500 tons per day and covering all the dairy needs of the state.

Dr Kamel Abdullah, CEO of Baladna, told Al Jazeera that the shipments to Afghanistan is just the beginning and the company plans to reach a large number of markets outside Qatar.

Abdullah revealed to Al Jazeera that many Arab and international businessmen have expressed their desire to import Baldna products because of its quality and high standards.
