Tyson invests in expanding poultry production capacity


RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA – Tanmiah Food Co. and Tyson Foods Inc., Springdale, Ark., have partnered to invest in expanding the poultry production capacity of Supreme Foods Processing Co. (SFPC), a subsidiary of Tanmiah , to enable the company to increase its chicken production capacity by 100,000 tons per year and its daily processing capacity to more than one million birds under an agreement signed in July 2022.

Tanmiah officials said the deal will provide the company with the opportunity to expand distribution using Tyson’s established technology and expertise in the global poultry processing industry. The partnership also included verbiage indicating the possibility of creating a global halal business.

SFPC produces value-added charcuterie in three factories, including two in Saudi Arabia and another in the United Arab Emirates. The Company’s distribution extends to customers in the hospitality industry and quick service restaurants located throughout the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Lebanon and in Jordan.

“We are excited about this partnership which should help us expand our customer base in the Middle East,” said Tan Sun, president of Tyson Foods Asia Pacific. “The partnership allows Tanmiah and Tyson Foods to work toward a common goal of efficient and sustainable food production for the region and beyond.”

Zulfiqar Hamadani, Managing Director of Tanmiah, added, “We are delighted to partner with a global leader in food production, which will bolster our ambitious regional and global expansion plans. This collaboration is very important for the poultry market in Saudi Arabia as it supports national self-sufficiency in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
