Dairy is an important part of Middle Eastern and African diets

The value in health and wellness products is rising rapidly across the Middle East and Africa, this is also evident in reports from Euromonitor. We expect this trend will continue.

Having previously had the lowest dairy consumption in the world, Africa’s newfound appetite for dairy nutrition presents a particularly exciting new frontier. The Middle East and Africa is now the fastest-growing region for dairy products in the world at 8.6% CAGR in the next five years.1

Sustainability is a rising trend in the Middle East, Africa and across the globe. As we have been working on sustainability for over 20 years, our expertise ranges from packaging and manufacturing to on-farm practices. We can support our customers with data and insights for their claims.
