Al Fayoum For Food Industries, an Egyptian dairy company, is set to expand its product line following a recent move to a new facility.

In 2016, the company chose IPI for filling and packing Feta cheese in aseptic carton bricks (125 Slim and 250 Standard). The product is packed in a liquid state and then solidifies along the process, thanks to solutions specifically designed by IPI for this purpose.

Al Fayoum For Food Industries is set to further expand its product portfolio with a new aseptic line to pack feta in 500g-size bricks, and by producing and packing liquid cream in aseptic cartons, becoming the first company in Egypt to pack cream in IPI aseptic cartons.

Al Fayoum For Food Industries started its business in 1998 by producing about five tons a day of various types of cheeses and within a few years it was able to expand its production.

The Egyptian company produces a wide range of cheeses, such as white cheese, Feta cheese, Domiati, Istanbuli, Baramelli, Quraish, low-fat, low-salt and others.

Its Al Wadi-branded products are delivered in many parts of the Arabic Peninsula such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Kuwait, and other countries as well, in addition to distribution across Egypt.

Today Al Fayoum For Food Industries is producing all these types of typical Egyptian cheese in IPI carton packaging, which allow to keep the great traditional taste in safe, long-lasting and nice-looking carton bricks.

"IPI team has shown to have a clear understanding of our requirements to provide a flexible solution that fully addressed our production needs. Our products are highly appreciated by consumers, and this makes us proud and willing to expand our cooperation with IPI in cheese and other fields soon,"​ Mohamed Ahmed Ramadan Al Sayed, chairman of Al Fayoum For Food Industries, said.

IPI supplies systems and materials for the aseptic packaging of UHT milk, beverages and other liquid foods, as well as white cheese.
