Widam & the Qatari Meat Industry

Historically, Qatar’s meat supply-chain has not been adequately diversified, leading to potential food security risks.

Widam today plays a major role in securing top-quality meat supplies from around the world through its multi-layered supply-chain planning, global investments in agriculture, support for local production, and strategic international partnerships.
