Agthia Group, one of the region’s leading food and beverage companies, is expanding and making strategic acquisitions in Egypt and Saudi Arabia following strong H1 2022 growth to AED 2.3 billion ($106 million).

The group, which has a consumer division – including protein, frozen goods, snacks, water and beverages – and an agri-business division, has acquired a 60 percent stake in Egypt’s Auf Group, a specialised healthy snacks and coffee manufacturer and retailer.

The company will soon also invest nearly AED 90 million into expansion plans in Saudi Arabia to establish a new industrial facility within the premises of Al Nabil Food Industries in Jeddah.

Alan Smith, CEO of Agthia, said: “Recent milestones, including expansion of our protein business in Saudi Arabia and the acquisition of Egypt-based Auf Group will further support the realisation of our five-year strategy as we capitalise on our strengthening momentum.

“Despite ongoing market challenges, and I am confident that we have the right foundations in place to maintain our momentum in the second half of the year.”
