Jordan-based Siniora Food Industries, a pioneer in the manufacturing of cold cuts, frozen meat and luncheon, has reported a net profit of JD1.926 million ($2.7 million) for the first half of 2017, a growth of 36 per cent compared with the same period of 2016.

While total revenues grew by 16 per cent over the same period of 2016, and amounted to JD27.5 million ($38.8 million) in the first half of 2017, said a statement from the company.

Chairman of Siniora Tarek Omar Aggad announced that the company’s positive results confirm the success of the expansion and development strategy put in place, especially in the Gulf and several Arab countries, which led the company’s growth and that have boosted its position and strength and enhanced its financial position, as well as increased its market share locally and regionally.

Aggad added that the Siniora’s regional sales grew by 26 per cent in the first half of 2017, compared to the same period of 2016, predominantly after its acquisition of the Diamond Meat Processing Company in Dubai in 2016, which has recently been accredited by the Saudi Food and Drug Authority to export its meat products to Saudi Arabia.
