As the latest example, global tea brands Lipton and Brooke Bond Red Label inaugurated their journey in Qatar yesterday at the Industrial Area in the presence of Minister of Commerce and Industry H E Ali bin Ahmed Al-Kuwari.

“The opening of the plant is one of the fruits of the State of Qatar’s ongoing efforts to achieve partnership with the private sector and support them by all means,” Qatar’s Minister of Commerce and Industry HE Ali bin Ahmed al-Kuwari said in a press statement, as reported by the Gulf Times.

“This is also to encourage them to contribute in supporting the national economy and achieve value addition, in addition to contributing to the achievement of self-sufficiency in many sectors, including the food products sector in line with National Vision 2030,” the Minister added.

It is learned that Lipton and Red Label brand built an “a kind of ecosystem over the years, which boosts other businesses as well”.
