Abu Dhabi-based Agthia Group, a leading food and beverage company, has announced the inauguration of a new protein manufacturing facility in Jeddah, valued at $24.5 million.

Situated in Jeddah’s First Industrial City, the 9,000-square-meter plant is set to produce over 9,000 tons annually to meet the increasing demand for Agthia’s protein brands. This launch aligns with Agthia’s strategic plan to strengthen its footprint in the GCC region.

CEO Alan Smith highlighted that the investment underscores Agthia’s commitment to delivering value to stakeholders and aims to establish the company as the top F&B industry player in the MENA region by 2025.

“By bolstering our presence in KSA’s rapidly expanding processed meat market, we are not only reinforcing our market position but also contributing significantly to the diversification and growth of our regional product portfolio,” Smith stated.

The Jeddah facility features two production lines capable of producing more than 50 different SKUs. It boasts a diverse supply chain with over 69 raw materials and is equipped with advanced in-house microbiology and sensory evaluation labs to ensure top-quality control and product development.
