Oman-based Mazoon Dairy Company has selected Abu Hatim Co, one of the sultanate’s leading construction and engineering companies, as the contractor for its site enabling works, said a report.

A formal agreement will be signed on December 25, added the Oman Daily Observer report.

A tender for pre-qualifying local companies to develop the farm, dairy plant and associated facilities at Al Sunaynah in Buraimi have also been floated earlier this year, it said.

The dairy farm is planned to house 25,000 Holstein Friesian cows over a period of 10 years.

The facility will have a state of the art cow cooling systems and fully automated milking parlour.

The processing plant will process fresh milk, laban, yoghurts, juices and ice cream of the highest quality upholding international standards with HACCP & ISO certification, added the report.
