Juhayna Food Industries was established as Juhayna Dairy in 1983. The company had an initial capital of just EGP 1.3 million. In the decade to follow, it enjoyed steady growth that saw it expand to include a second dairy production company (Juhayna Food Industries), totaling its authorized capital to EGP 5 billion with a paid-up capital of EGP 941 million.
In 2004, the two companies merged to become one entity under the name of Juhayna Food Industries, specialized in the production of dairy and juice products.
Today the company has become a well-established, vertically integrated market leader with seven separate state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Egypt, a retail and logistics operation, and an agriculture and livestock business from which it sources the vast majority of its raw materials. Juhayna Food Industries was floated on the Egyptian Exchange in May 2010, and is now included on its benchmark index, the EGX 30.
