Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamed and Minister of Economic Affairs of Malaysia Mohamed Azmin Ali, visited Baladna Food Industries (BFI), Qatar’s largest producer of dairy products and beverages, and a subsidiary of Baladna Q.P.S.C.
The Malaysian Prime Minister was received by the Minister of Commerce and Industry HE Ali bin Ahmed al Kuwari and key BFI members. Thy included Mohammed Moutaz al Khayyat, Chairman; Mohammed Badr al Sada, Vice Chairman; Mohd Nazrul Izam bin Mansor, CEO of FELCRA Berhad; HE Fahad Mohammed Kafoud, Ambassador of Qatar to Malaysia; and HE Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin, Ambassador of Malaysia.
Earlier this year the BFI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with FELCRA Berhad, Malaysia’s government-owned company. BFI will share its expertise to help FELCRA Berhad build a large-scale dairy project to double the fresh milk production of Malaysia over the next two years, according to the MoU.
This initiative is consistent with the expansion plans of Baladna and the National Food Security of Malaysia.
During his visit, the Malaysian PM toured the state-of-the-art facilities and held discussions on the strategic plans the flagship brand had put in place for their recent MoU with FELCRA Berhad.
Commenting on the visit, Baladna Chairman Mohammed Moutaz al Khayyat said, “We are honoured to have the Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad visit Baladna. The recent alliance with Malaysia is a sign of the success of the company. We have invested in the best people, technology and practices that have helped us to gain international recognition while demonstrating the resilience and capability of Qatar.”
The BFI has started exporting products to countries around the region, including Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Oman, while looking at potential markets in Libya, Kuwait, Jordan, and Mauritania.
