Alwatania Poultry: a legacy in the making

Dr. Mohammed Sulaiman Alrajhi of AlWatania Poultry, the largest poultry facility in the Middle East, talks about what has contributed to the firm’s success and upcoming projects.

How has AlWatania Poultry managed to become an industry leader?
The massive success of AlWatania Poultry is due to the vision of our founder, Sheikh Suleiman Al-Rajh. He left no stone unturned in building this fully integrated facility. We have followed in his footsteps, and today, AlWatania Poultry has accomplished its goal of becoming a leader. This couldn’t have been achieved without our human capital and the Saudi government’s generous support.

Do you have any new product releases?
We will be increasing our production capacity to meet local and international demand, and will cater to the growing needs of QSR and HORECA clientele.

What expansion plans can you share with us?
We are excited about the idea of expansion, so during coming years, we plan to increase the availability of the AlWatania brand and reach new markets. Our goal is to target countries in the Levant, South Asia and parts of Europe, providing them with our halal products.

How profitable has the Egyptian market been for you?
AlWatania Egypt is another success story of AlWatania Poultry. In recent decades, we have expanded in Egypt, relying on the expertise of the best in the business, using the highest quality tools and continuously improving our products to surpass the expectations of our clients. Our goal is to become the top choice for poultry in North Africa.

What else can we expect from AlWatania Poultry in the future?
Saudi Vision 2030 aims to increase food security through sustainability. It is supporting local poultry production to reduce reliance on imports. Based on this vision, our main strategic objective is to develop our resources to achieve national food security in line with the Saudi-made initiative that promotes local.
