Qatar Seeks Self-Sufficiency of Dairy mid-2018

30 November 2017

Qatar’s animal production company Baladna said it is seeking self-sufficiency in milk and dairy products by mid-2018.

This comes in order to address the effects of the blockade imposed by four Arab countries on Qatar since June 5 last.

The company is seeking to form a herd of cows, transported to the country by air and sea from Europe and the United States, to produce milk and dairy products sufficient for local demand at a farm in the area of ​​Umm Hawaya north of Doha.

Qatar’s total demand for fresh milk and dairy products is estimated at 400 tonnes per day, a production that Baladna plans to reach by mid-2018.
