Juhayna Food Industries is a leading Egypt-based manufacturer specialized in the production, processing and packaging of dairy, juice, and cooking products. Since its founding in 1983, it has secured a frontrunner position in the dairy and juice industries in Egypt and has expanded its presence in the Middle East, a feat made possible through its firm commitment to delivering a wide range of high-quality, healthy, and safe products that have become trusted household names.
Founded by Safwan Thabet, Juhayna Food Industries was built on a vision to introduce the market to a new business model for food production that holds innovation at its core. Today, with four fully operational facilities, a vast network of distribution centers serving more than 65,000 retail outlets nationwide, and a 550-feddan, fully-owned dairy farm that has the capacity to house 8,000 milking cows covering a sizeable portion of the company’s raw milk needs, Juhayna continues to raise the benchmark for premium quality Egyptian manufactured products.
In its 30 years of operations, Juhayna’s dairy segment has cultivated an ever-increasing number of customers loyal to its brands, affording it a comfortable lead above all its dairy competitors with consistently strong market shares. It is also the sole supplier of dairy for McDonalds Egypt alongside many other leading fast-food restaurants, hotels, airlines, and educational institutions.
In partnership with Tetra Pack, Juhayna continues to engage in an ongoing public awareness campaign that highlights the hazards of loose milk in an effort to promote healthy living and improve public health standards. The campaign has been successful in significantly reducing the percentage of consumers who opt for loose milk in Egypt. While the consumption of loose milk has dropped by nearly half over the years, there is still need for a continued effort to spread awareness; a cause that Juhayna remains committed to pursuing.
Its use of quality ingredients, internally manufactured concentrates, and state-of-the-art technologies for processing and packaging, alongside heavy investments in R&D to enhance the product offerings, aid in fulfilling our vision of bringing high quality, nutritious products to the customers. Having achieved notable success in the Egyptian and Middle Eastern markets, it is pursuing new growth opportunities with exports to East and West Africa.
