About Al Islami Foods:
Established as CO-OP ISLAMI in 1981 to cater to the growing demand for halal food in the Arab world, AL ISLAMI FOODS was formed as a result of the long relentless efforts commenced in the early seventies when Hajj Saeed Bin Ahmad Lootah instituted Dubai Co-operative Society.
Starting with its successful frozen chicken product line, CO-OP ISLAMI further expanded its operations to include processed meat.
In 1991, Dubai Co-operative Society’s efforts were culminated by establishing its “CO-OP ISLAMI” meat processing plant in Jebel Ali Free Zone. This plant is considered a recognizable breakthrough as it became the highly active producer of a variety of food products under the name “CO-OP ISLAMI.
In 2006, CO-OP ISLAMI was re-launched as AL ISLAMI in an effort to propel the company to new heights of success. Now, Al Islami products are considered as a quality benchmark trusted by consumers across the UAE and the GCC, and this has made it one of the best and most preferred brands in the region. www.alislamifoods.com
