Kraft is preparing to inaugurate the new US$40m manufacturing facility in Bahrain that will supply all Kraft products to the Middle East and Africa.

Annually, the 60,000 square-meter facility will produce around 60,000 tones of Kraft products, including Tang , Kraft Cream Cheese Spread and Kraft Cheddar Cheese.

Patrick Satamian, VP and area director Middle East and Africa said: “The Middle East and Africa are important markets for Kraft Foods . The Bahrain plant opening gives us a competitive edge in growing our market share in this region as it will enable us to meet consumer demand more efficiently and quickly”.
