AOAD honors Almarai participation in Arab food security

The Arab Organization for Agricultural Development “AOAD” honored Almarai Company on Arab Agriculture Day 2015ل This tribute was paid in the conference held in Khartoum, the Sudanese capital, chaired by AOAD Director General Dr. Tareq Al-Zidjali, and under the patronage of Sudan’s Minister of Agriculture and Forests Professor Ibrahim Adam. The motto of the conference was “Responsible agricultural investment for Arab food security”. Mr. Mohammad Al-Blewi, Executive Manager in Almarai said “The conference was fruitful in several aspects relating to the issue of agricultural investment in Arab countries and achievement of the objectives of sustainable development. This could be achieved by persistent work on the part of the competent authorities. Almarai is largely interested in this aspect, and is seeking to increase its responsible investments in Arab countries”. It is worth mentioning that Almarai owns farms in four continents; namely Asia, Europe, Northern and Southern Americas. This step is taken by Almarai to preserve and maintain the water resources in Saudi Arabia, in addition to promoting food security, after the challenges encountered by major companies in agriculture.
