The inauguration ceremony of Zabeeha was held on Wednesday with Fauji Fertilizer Binqasim Limited Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Lt. General R Javed Iqbal as the chief guest. Dignitaries from the city, senior army officers and citizens attended the inauguration.
In the welcoming note, Chief Operating Officer, Brig Abid Janjiana (retd) regarded the launch of Zabeeha as the success of Fauji Meat Limited in the local arena. Focusing on the quality standards, he said:
We take pride in owning the largest Halal Meat Processing Plant in South East Asia assembled with an aim and capacity to deliver distinctly flavorsome meat of Pakistan to the ever growing demand of the domestic and global market.
Furthermore, he added: “We are certified and approved to deliver the best flavor of Pakistan to the world around. In doing so, we strive to strengthen the local ecosystem as well by offering quality food to the fellow men through Zabeeha.”
The inroads into the commercial markets will help FFBL pick up its dwindling profits which have been declining continuously during the last few years.
