The Cold Chain

From Farm Straight to The Consumer

After testing during the milking process, all good milk is transported to the farm silos.

Additional lab tests are conducted to ensure the quality of milk.

Once approved, milk is transported in cold storage tanks to the plant. The milk is pumped into plant storage silos where it undergoes pasteurization, homogenisation and further processing.

No stones are left unturned.

Dubai Municipality, a government organization, carries out checking of our raw milk, milk in the tanks, milk after the pasteurization in the farm and our products in the store.
