Last Dec 22, 2018, Baladna Farms welcomed a dignitary guest, HE Adbullah bin Adbulaziz bin Turki-al-Subaie, Minister of the Municipality and Environment of Qatar. He was received with warm and hospitable greetings from the Baladna team, Power Holding International (PIH) Corporate Seniors, and Vice Chairman and Group CEO, Mr. Ramez Al-Khayyat.
Mr. Abdullah was given a tour of Baladna’s milking parlor, led by Baladna CEO Mr. Peter Weltevreden and Farm General Manager, Mr. Chris Blakeney. The Baladna team showcased the state-of-the-art rotary machines in the viewing gallery and Baladna’s cow milking process. The tour was followed by an informative presentation of Baladna’s journey and progression.
Subsequently, Mr. Abdullah was given a complete tour of both farms, where Baladna houses its livestock. The tour was also facilitated by PIH’s Group Marketing and Communications Director, Mr. Mazen Alsbeti and Cluster Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Kamel Abdallah.
During the tour, the group discussed prospective and potential projects for Baladna and Qatar. Currently, Qatar has been self-sufficient when it comes to dairy production. The arduous and challenging task of self-sufficiency was of tremendous importance for Baladna and PIH’s Group Chairman Mr. Moutaz Al-Khayyat. However, despite the challenges, Mr. Moutaz continuously seeks to find innovative and ingenious ways to contribute to Qatar’s development, including shipping more than 14,000 cows since the blockade.
The visit of Mr. Abdullah proves to be a substantial support to Baladna from the Qatar government, to keep pushing forward in achieving Qatar’s goal to be an independent and self-sustaining country.معتز الخياط , #معتزالخياط , #معتز_الخياط Moutaz Al Khayyat, #moutazalkhayyat , #moutaz_al_khayyat
