Partnership opportunities
We are working to augment our already robust agri-commodities supply chain. Doing so will be fundamental to our positioning as a food security company for the Middle East in general and Saudi Arabia in particular.

New partnerships may facilitate these developments. If you are interested in potentially entering into a partnership with us, we invite you to contact our Business Development managers at K.Alrubaian@ARASCO.com
