Almarai, the largest dairy producer in the Gulf region has recently decided to invest a substantial amount

of 4 billion SAR (800 million Euro) in their poultry activities. This investment is part of Almarai’s long term

vision to take full advantage of the opportunities the poultry market will bring. One of the steps in this

investment plan is an order for Meyn-Ishida of a complete Wall to Wall processing facility in Hail, Saudi

Arabia. The output capacity of the facility will be 2 x 12,000 birds per hour and consists of 16 weighing

and packing lines.

Howard Davis, Almarai’s General Manager Poultry: ”Our new factory will manufacture under our poultry

brand name ‘Alyoum’. Alyoum means “today”, and the focus of our business is to offer our consumers

fresh poultry products of consistently superior quality. “Quality you can trust” is the foundation of all the

products in the Almarai range, whether poultry, dairy, bakery, or other categories. With Meyn-Ishida we

have selected a dedicated business partner who will deliver a fully integrated processing, packing, and

packaging solution. This will enable the product quality we, and our consumers, require, as well as

provide an attractive operating environment from both management and financial perspectives.”

Meyn-Ishida combines the poultry processing expertise of Meyn with the weighing, packing and end-ofline

knowhow of Ishida to offer a full range of integrated systems and equipment. Since January 2011, the

alliance has been awarded several high value international contracts, including fully integrated plants in

Russia (Valujki and Tambov), Wipasz (Poland) and Chile.

Meyn-Ishida offers competitive wall-to-wall solutions in the poultry processing marketplace, delivering the

highest yields, cutting giveaway to the absolute minimum, and realising optimal total cost of ownership for

its business partners.
