Almarai started its operations in 1977 by Irish brothers Alastair McGuckian
and Paddy McGuckian and Prince Sultan bin Mohammed bin Saud Al Kabeer.
During the early years of the company's history, there was little
infrastructure for the production and sale of milk in the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia. Prince Sultan recognized that the area and the wider Middle East
could benefit from higher quality milk production and logistics. Almarai
then set up a number of facilities in regions across Saudi Arabia, which
initially helped local farmers produce and distribute milk.
During the early 1990s, Almarai entered a period of restructuring and
reinvestment that took it from a decentralized to a centralized structure.
Five decentralized processing plants were replaced with a central processing
plant. Ten small dairy farms that were scattered across Saudi Arabia were
replaced with four large dairy farms in Al Kharj in the central region.
