History of Yaumi

Al Rashed Food Company Limited was formed to realize a far reaching vision and business strategy of its founder, Sheikh Rashed Al Rashed. It was established in 1991 under the name of Al Rashed Bakeries as a major supplier of high-quality, wholesome baked goods. Further, as part of its expansion plans, it introduced several specialty products in the market at affordable prices, making Al Rashed a household name in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and around the GCC.

The company started its operations in 1991 with the production of bakery items such as bread, buns, rolls and more and has since, added other specialty bakery products along the lines. In 1993 Al Rashed Bakeries became the sole(?) supplier for the global food giant, McDonalds, which was soon followed by KFC, Hardees, Burger King, Subway, Quiznos, and several other popular brands. The automatic puff and cake line was opened in 1995. A new bun line was opened in 2000, followed by another bun line in 2008. To meet the increasing demand for quality flour tortillas, new flour tortilla lines were opened in 2009 and 2010.

In the last 20 years of its operations Al Rashed Food Company Limited set up one bread line, two bun lines, two flour tortilla lines, and one automatic puff and cake line, catering across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In future, Al Rashed is going to add to the existing lines a modern automatic tortilla chips and waffle line that will meet the demand for good quality, tasty snacks.
