AVOD takes part in the Business Opportunities Forum

In its continuous efforts to promote Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) in the Sultanate, Areej Vegetable Oils and Derivatives (AVOD) participated in the recently held Business Opportunities Forum.

Mr. Salem Al Bortmany, Deputy General Manager, AVOD comments: "AVOD regularly participates in events and exhibitions set to support business opportunities for SMEs, as we believe that a strong SME base is the foundation of a strong and prosperous country. Business Opportunities Forum was a perfect platform to gather information on the challenges and opportunities for the realisation of greater support to SMEs. AVOD is committed to support all initiatives that spur the development of SMEs in Oman".

Organised by Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Business Opportunities Forum was a two-day event that offered a great opportunity for AVOD and other participants to interact with SMEs, understand their challenges and establish approaches to support them. AVOD had also installed a stall to exhibit its 100 per cent Omani products at the event.

AVOD has come a long way since it was established in 1980 by Dr Omar Zawawi. Today, AVOD is amongst the 20 largest public limited companies in the country. Areej Vegetable Oils enjoys a substantial market share in Oman and its current exports are 70% of the total business. It has a modern hygienic plant and manufactures and markets top quality cooking oils, ghee, margarine, specialty fats and butter products. The Company's leading brands Minara, Sohar, Khafeef, Jabal Akhdar and Muscat Margarine are trusted names in every Omani home.
