Aleid Foods Chairman of the Board of Directors Fahad Al-Mutairi said that the company focused in 2021 on creating a clear and detailed business plan that establishes the foundations for restructuring its operations, reaching efficiency in standard operation procedures and keeping pace with business development. Those results were achieved through consolidated efforts in three paralleled directions, he pointed out, adding that the first is by building new partnerships with local, regional and international trademarks to enter the healthy and snack foods market. While the second was expanding into new sectors by setting up new branches and specialized companies, the first of which was the acquisition of ‘Honey World’ company, which is a Kuwaiti company with a long history and three generations of experience in importing the finest types of honey from the best sources worldwide. Another step was establishing a highly equipped catering center dedicated to offering quality products, he added. “Our development continued by expansion into new sectors, most importantly the Horeca and restaurant catering services sectors, and that by establishing the company Legion Foods with the goal of achieving leadership on the local food sector’s level,” he noted.
Furthermore, Al-Mutairi indicated that the third direction is by focusing on digital development for business empowerment, using digital technologies and operations in marketing and constant studying of the market in order to meet the ever-changing demand quickly and effectively and maintain leadership in various food sectors.
Al-Mutairi asserted Aleid Food’s commitment to constant growth and achieving sustainable returns for shareholders and customers. The company’s three main priorities remain in offering healthy food solutions, using advanced and digital technology to market products and services, and investing in young national manpower either through employment or partnership, he concluded.
