Oman Food Investment Holding Co. (OFIC) is reportedly investing US$620m into building three factories in Oman for the production of dairy and poultry.

A report in the Times of Oman stated plans for a $258m dairy farm centralised processing plant in the province of Al Sinaina were underway. Products including fresh milk, fresh juice, mineral water, laban and yoghurt will be marketed under the National Pride brand.

The poultry project 'An Naama' will be established in Ibri and will produce 60,000 tonnes of poultry a year, the report said.

Earlier this year, OFIC announced plans to boost the production of red meat in the country. The company will establish slaughter houses in Salalah, and will procure sheep and cows from Tanzania and Sudan.
