Our Story

Tanmia Agricultural Development Company was founded in 1972 in Lebanon as a day-old chick producer. By 1998, we launched our meat products and became one of the leading chicken meat processing companies in Lebanon and the Middle East.

Over the years we have perfected our practices in broiler farming, poultry processing and further processing to provide consumers with the healthiest variety of original chicken products.

Our Vision: Be and be recognized as the most trusted chicken farming and processing company in Lebanon with consumer-preferred brand and products. Our Mission: To be the leader of branded chicken products in Lebanon through, mastery, innovation and availability.

We direct all our production facilities towards that end by:
  • Raising chicken in hygienic farms safe from contamination
  • Feeding chicken all natural, vegetarian feed
  • Limiting human contact with raw materials and finished products
  • Handling and packaging professionally to ensure freshness
  • Labeling our products accurately to protect the consumer’s interest
  • Catering to our customer’s needs and requirements

Our Values

As a pioneer in the poultry industry, we continuously aim in improving our mastery in raising chicken, in processing them, in delivering them to market, and in doing a follow-up with our consumers.

We rise above the average level of service to innovate with the aim to create an emotional impact on our internal and external customers consumers. We encourage Out Of The Box thinking to improve our products and optimize our processes. We differentiate ourselves through resourcefulness, originality and inspiration while listening to consumer needs.

We believe our business exists to attract and satisfy our consumers. We anticipate their needs and we aim in securing our products presence all over the country.

Our Care

To us, Food Safety Management System is key to our operations for three reasons:

  • To exceed our consumers expectations of quality and taste and ensure their satisfaction and trust
  • To respect and abide by Government food legislations and contribute positively to the food industry in Lebanon.
  • To achieve consistently consumers’ satisfaction and reduce the potential losses from nonconformity.

And now, Tanmia’s Food Safety Management Systems is proud to be ISO 22000 certified, further reassuring its credibility as a professionally managed poultry product provider.ISO 22000 certification is granted only to companies that function within extremely strict international standards of hygiene and quality assurance.

Since our existence, we guaranteed the best quality and most hygienic products and therefore we were the first food processing company in Lebanon to be awarded the HACCP certificate in November 2004 by QMI (Quality Management Institute), a division of the Canadian Standards Association, confirming the implementation of proper Food Safety Management Systems.

Our Environmental Responsibility

Because we believe that the journey of clean products starts with ensuring production in a clean environment, the company has been actively protecting the environment ever since it started production in 1998. With an initial investment exceeding 1.5 million dollars and daily expenses of over $2000, the company installed a water treatment plant, a rendering plant and a bio bed filter to treat the 3 types of waste generated by production lines: solid, water and gas. All solid waste is carefully handled and recycled into organic fertilizer and/or a feeding ingredient used by swine and dog farmers. Finally the gas emissions are filtered from bad smells by using the bio bed filtering technique.

As a result, we were rewarded for being the greenest industry in Lebanon by receiving the Green Mind award in 2012 and we completed the “Cleaner Production Program” implemented by the Lebanese Cleaner Production Center in collaboration with UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organizations) and the Austrian embassy, to be proudly awarded the Clean Production certificate for our excellent environmental performance in Lebanon.
