The Organic Meat Company Ltd. (TOMCL), a Pakistani meat processing company, announced on Friday that it had received contracts worth $2.2 million for the sale of its products to the Middle East in a notice to the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX).
It claimed to be “the first firm to acquire a contract to provide ‘Fresh-Chilled Bone-in Beef’ to Jordan” in a $1.6 million deal to be completed over the next 12 months.
It has also been awarded a contract to sell ‘Commercially-Branded Frozen Bone-in Beef’ to Kuwait for approximately $0.6 million, with delivery expected in December 2022.
“These contracts will benefit our business and provide good value to our shareholders,” it said.
In December, Jordan’s Ministry of Agriculture approved three Pakistani slaughterhouses – Tata Best Foods, TOMCL, and Tazij Meats – for the shipment of bovine, sheep, goat, and camel meat to Jordan.
In September, TOMCL was awarded a $1 million contract to deliver frozen meat to Saudi Arabia. At the time, the company announced a deal with Saudi Arabia’s Global Developing Food Industries Company to deliver frozen boneless degraded meat.
“The group is regarded as one of the region’s fastest growing food manufacturing and distribution companies,” TOMCL said in a statement last year.
TOMCL was also approved by Chinese customs in April to export heat-treated beef to China.
Meanwhile, in November 2021, Tata Best Foods exported the country’s “first-ever meat consignment to Jordan.” At the time, Abdul Razak Dawood, the then-Prime Minister’s Advisor for Commerce and Investment, stated that the Ministry of Commerce’s diversification policy includes the promotion and facilitation of non-traditional products to new markets.
Egypt’s veterinary quarantine service has also approved the export of meat to the country by ten Pakistani meat processing companies.
