About Al-Rawabi Dairy Company (http://www.alrawabidairy.com/eng):
Launched in 1990, Al Rawabi Dairy Co. was the first brand to pack fresh milk in plastic bottles, an instant hit with the consumers which inspired the entire industry to follow suit. It was also the first dairy company to introduce 100% natural juices before others in the region followed. The dairy product range of Al Rawabi extends from fresh milk - full cream, half cream, double cream, low fat milk, skimmed, flavored milk to laban, Yoghurt (Robivia), and a range of functional health drink (B-Activ). Al Rawabi juice drinks and desserts are also very popular with consumers.
Within the first few years of operation, the company grew tremendously to become the foremost producer of milk and milk products in Dubai. The rapid growth of the company has to a large extent been related to its obsession with quality - the animal healthcare, temperature control at the sheds, the milking techniques, the artificial insemination and embryo transfer programmes are amongst the best in the industry. At every stage of the processing of the milk, dairy products and fresh juices, quality standards are stringently adhered to; ensuring that every bottle/pack that leaves the factory meets the exceptional Al Rawabi quality mark. The company's drive to make staff more quality conscious through intensive staff training, implementing new systems and deploying first-rate information technology has paid off with the ISO 2200 Certification and HACCP accreditation.
The increasing demand for fresh juices in the country prompted Al Rawabi to introduce AI Rawabi Orange Juice and later on, mango juice and fruit cocktail, which have since become extremely popular amongst the health conscious consumers. Through an effective mix of quality products, Al Rawabi has been able to establish itself as the market leader in the UAE and Oman supplying to over 8000 outlets in the region. AI Rawabi products are available in the UAE, Oman and Qatar.
