Dr Ahmed El Tigani

Together, we have made an incredible journey of success, and more importantly, created a brand that resonates with the Nation’s spirit of excellence. For me, Al Rawabi supplies food to my beloved country and is a lifelong passion and I am proud and glad to push the boundaries to make this entity a jewel in the country’s history.
Throughout our journey, we faced many challenges which we never gave up to, instead we stood up and innovated solutions, we moved stronger on in our journey to success, and we stood proud on our achievements. The challenges pushed us to innovate so we introduced the plastic bottles as the first UAE company to do this, which in turn gained us 7% of the dairy market share, and after that the introduction of the juices section helped score profits that balanced the losses made in the dairy. We were also the first company to introduce the family size of 2 liters, 3 liters and a gallon, as we saw those packing sizes answering the needs of the average family size in the UAE. We came up with functional products such as Super Milk, Nutree Boost, Vitamin D milk. Hence, the innovation and finding new ways to answer consumer needs are the biggest success factor in the industry, as you have to keep track with the ever rapid changes. The tempo of life is changing, people have less time, but want to look younger, live longer, be more productive.
We are investing a lot of money in the research, and we call in the best experts to support us developing the best products and answer the needs of the market.
Over the years, we have kept up our investment in the facility’s infrastructure and cattle stock in line with the market demand. We have diversified in line with the ever evolving demand of the consumer. We are on our way to become a regional brand and by 2020 we will be present in all GCC countries. We will also increase our visibility in more African countries.
Today, close to 30 years of our presence, we envision to go bigger and become a MENA brand by 2020, beyond just a dairy farm to a food company with multiple product portfolios countries in the region. Our tagline is Nation’s Health, and we believe by offering high quality products that help with the rising deficiencies in the region we can contribute to people having a healthy and a happy lifestyle, which in return makes them productive members of the society. Al Rawabi plans to follow the needs of the market and further innovate in the health space, as we strongly believe that the future is healthy.

About Al Rawabi

Part of the heritage of the UAE and one of the country’s leading Dairy & Juice companies, we started our journey in 1989 on our farm in the heart of Dubai’s desert in Al Khawaneej. Our life as a dairy farm began with 500 imported cows with a vision to become a market leader in fresh dairy and juice products. Consumer demand for our products grew steadily over the years which opened doors across the UAE & Oman. Our UAE dairy farm currently has over 16,500 cattle that operates around the clock with our production facility operating 24 hours.

An award-winning UAE-based company, we serve more than one million customers per day, and in 2020 celebrated our 30th anniversary. Our products are easily recognizable as they bear the words Home Made in the UAE. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do.

We introduced plastic milk bottles to the UAE in 1991 and were the first company to bring fresh juices to the GCC in 1995. As a leading dairy manufacturer in the UAE, we were the first company to introduce functional dairy products into the market. We also have plans to launch an environmentally friendly biogas plant in the near future.

Al Rawabi currently produces 350,000 liters of dairy products and 150,000 liters of juice products per day. The Nation’s Health is of paramount importance to us hence we ensure our products are fresh and always packed with health benefits. As Al Rawabi’s dairy farm is located in close proximity to the dairy processing plant our products are delivered to your retail shelves within 24 hours. It’s been an honour and a privilege to serve the nation for over 30 years. Our promise is to ensure the Nation’s health.

By 2015 our herd had increased to 12,500 and we currently have more than 16,500 cattle.
