Baladna, a Qatar Public Shareholding Company, has acquired a 5% stake in the Egyptian company Juhayna Food Industries Company, which is listed on the Egyptian Stock Exchange, through several purchases of shares from the market.
The Philippines, through the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), has partnered with Baladna Qatar Public Shareholding Company (QPSC) for the establishment of a $500m integrated dairy facility in the Philippines.
