Made with love

Al-awwal is multipurpose flour, particularly for savoury and pastry recipes that require strong dough extensibility like sweet and savoury Gurassa, Pizza, Sambosa, Dumplings and general bakery. Al-awwal was launched in 1999 in response to consumers’ need for hygienic and multi-purpose wheat flour. Al-awwal managed to convert a normal commodity into a powerful brand which embodies both functional and emotional attributes, making it a family favourite around Sudan.

DAL Food and Al-awwal continue to have great ambitions to make more quality flour more available to more people around Sudan, and to play an increasingly pivotal role in encouraging people to choose higher-quality, more hygienic flour to ensure a healthier life for them and their families.


Social Investment

Since 2009, Sayga’s Al-Awwal Flour brand has been rewarding excellence by recognizing the first, or highest-scoring, student in each field of the Sudanese Secondary School Certificate (academic, commercial, agricultural, industrial, and women-specific studies).

We sponsor a festive ceremony which is attended by family, friends, academia, DAL employees and government officials to recognise the students. Each honoured student is presented with a medal, a certificate, a tablet computer and an all-expense paid trip to Malaysia for an English language intensive course.


The first consumer flour brand in Sudan was SAYGA , which was first a general purpose flour. Later specialty home baking products were developed to address different baking needs and were given different names such as Al-Awwal, Makhsous and Semolina, to reflect their respective specialties.

Makhsous is the wheat flour brand that makes superior tasting cakes & cookies everyone loves because of its premium wheat quality. It is associated with happy occasions like weddings and feasts when desserts are baked for celebrations.
