The History behind DAL Food

Tradition, Innovation, Local Sourcing, Education

It all started when DAL Agriculture was established in 1984. DAL Agriculture is one of the bedrocks of DAL Group, supplying and sourcing much of the raw material for DAL Food from alfalfa and sorghum to milk. In 1996 Sayga Investment Company was estbalished and has grown since then to become the foremost flour milling and packaging company in Sudan, with a leading position in the supply of flour to bakeries and a dominant position in supplying packaged flour, sorghum and pasta to consumers. In 1997 DAL Dairy Factory was established to pioneer the provision of pasteurised fresh milk and UHT (Ultra Heat Treated) milk in Sudan, and eventually became the leading dairy company in the country. DAL Food Industries was then set up in 2002 to produce, pack and distribute Coca-Cola products. It also incorporates the leading water brand Safia, and an array of fruit juices.

In December 2013, the four DAL Group companies operating in agriculture, dairy, flour and grains, and soft drinks merged to form the agri-food company DAL Food with the vision of becoming the biggest provider of basic staple foods in sudan
