Saudi Dairy & Foodstuff Co.

The story of SADAFCO - Saudia Dairy and Foodstuff Company - began on 21st April 1976 when a joint venture between three dairy companies in Jeddah, Madinah and Dammam was formed between Saudi, Kuwaiti and European businessmen and the Company began production with Saudia Milk at the Jeddah Factory in 1977.

Ten years later the European partners sold their shares to Saudi and Kuwaiti shareholders and in 1990 the three dairy companies merged into one to officially form SADAFCO. An initial public offering (IPO) on 23rd May 2005 led to the Company’s listing on the Saudi Arabian Stock Exchange, Tadawul.

In 2016, the Company celebrated its 40th anniversary. From producing long life milk initially, the Company has diversified its product portfolio offering various food and beverage items. During this period, SADAFCO has maintained its position as a market leader in Long Life Milk, Tomato Paste and Ice Cream in Saudi Arabia.

Today, SADAFCO is a leading, world-class, Saudi Arabia based company whose activities include local production, importation, distribution and marketing of a wide range of food and beverage products. The portfolio includes dairy products, ice cream, tomato paste, snacks, drinks and other foodstuff items.

The Company operates two factories in Jeddah and one in Dammam. All these factories have highest safety and environment standards. All three SADAFCO factories remain certified with ISO22000:2005 (for Food Safety), ISO14001:2004 (for Environment) and OHSAS 18001:2007 (for Occupational Health & Safety).
