The creation of NADEC Foods and NADEC Agriculture at the end of 2011 heralded a new era for the company, with the vision of long-term success as an independent company in open markets. This vision underlines NADEC‘s market and consumer-oriented approach for the future, which is made necessary by the constantly changing market dynamics taking place in Saudi Arabia and in the broader Middle East.

Freshness and taste are key to the success of this group. With facilities strategically located in the heart of Saudi Arabia, NADEC is the second largest processor and direct-to-store distributor of liquid milk marketed under the nadec brand name.
