Malcolm Jordan replaced Dr Adballah as the Chief Executive Officer and delegated him with all powers required for that post, the statement added. Malcolm will lead the development and execution of both short- and long-term strategies, supporting the achievement of Qatar’s National Food Security Programme, Baladna has said on its website. Prior to joining Baladna, Jordan was part of the leadership team of Almarai, the largest food manufacturer and distributor in the Middle East and the largest integrated dairy company in the world. During his tenure at Almarai, Mr. Jordan held several executive positions including Executive Vice President-New Business, CEO-IPNC, General Manager-Marketing, General Manager-Quality, Product Development, and Innovation. Having worked in the region for the past 25 years, Jordan has a proven track record of delivering superior commercial results, building highly motivated teams and leading business transformation, value chain optimization and major innovation projects. Jordan is a graduate in Food Technology from the West of Scotland Agricultural College in Scotland and holds a Certificate in Leadership Development from IMD in Switzerland. Baladna Food Industries is Qatar’s largest dairy and beverages company. Its herd of cows has grown to approximately 18,000 heads, housed in two farms spread over 2 million square metres. After the Saudi-led quartet imposed an unjust blockade on Qatar in 2017, closing its only land border through which the majority of Qatar’s everyday goods used to come, Baladna flew in thousands of cows to help Qatar achieve self-sufficiency in dairy products.
