Co-Op Islami moves into frozen seafood sector
Dubai’s Halal meat product supplier, Co-Op Islami has expanded its frozen food product lines into seafood with the introduction of a range of frozen cooked and uncooked shrimps, stated a press release.
The move into frozen seafood is the first step in a planned growth program by the company as it responds to growing demand from its customer base to provide a far wider range of products.
Co-op Islami was set up by Dubai Cooperative Society in 1981 to provide halal meat products as per Islamic methods. Starting with frozen chicken, Co-op Islami expanded to provide burgers, sausages, kebabs and minced meat. In 1991, the Co-op Islami plant was set up in Jebel Ali Free Zone. The company has recently opened a distribution center in Saudi Arabia and there are plans to open more such centers in other countries in the region. — (menareport.com)
