After the recent scares over bird flu health and safety concerns have figured high on the buying public’s list of priorities. The awards will go a long way to allaying those fears.

“This is a tremendous achievement for us,” said Tarek Taher, president and CEO of the Aal Taher Group of Companies that owns the Radwa poultry farm. “We feel it recognizes both our company’s commitment to our efficiency of production, the health and welfare of our customers and the concern for the environment that underpins our way of approaching a very necessary food production facility.”
