Saudi dairy producers, particularly of milk, have always been the market leaders in the Gulf in terms of quality and quantity. Saudi dairy producers not only sell their products in the Kingdom but within the entire Gulf region, especially the United Arab Emirates, from their farms and plants in the Eastern and Central Provinces.The rising per capita milk consumption, coupled with an increasing population, and the demand for a nutrient-rich diet are rapidly driving the growth of the market studied.
