Alastair Bruce, General Manager, GCC for Anchor Food Professionals, said: “With rising incomes and rapid growth of out-of-home dining, food and beverage operators are increasingly seeking premium dairy solutions to meet the demand for excellence, convenience and great taste – but at the same time, affordability.
“We’ve developed our new Soft Style Cream Cheese especially for the Middle East region, to meet local chefs’ preferences to work with a softer style of cream cheese without losing its full dairy flavour.”

It has offices and distributors in the UAE, Oman, KSA, Bahrain, Kuwait and Lebanon, as well as an innovation centre in Dubai and a manufacturing facility in Dammam.
