Company background:  

Addis Dallas Industries PLC is a privately owned company established in 2013 by Wzo Meskerem  Belachew Belihu who is also the major shareholder of the company. It is a biscuit and flour factory, located in Awash Melkassa, Dodota wereda, Arsi Zone, Oromia. ADI produces and sells various types of biscuits and processed flour to end consumers. It produces biscuits in 8 flavors (Uta Mango, Uta Vanilla, Uta Cracker, Uta Cinnamon, Tady Chocolate, Tady Orange, Tady Strawberry, and AD marie). The existing production line of ADI has the capacity to produce 3000 cartons per day, each carton containing 60 packets. These products are widely popular in the local market. Currently, ADI is exporting its products to Somalia and Djibouti with the target to enter the European market. In order to meet the growing demand, ADI intends to continuously increase its capacity in the long term and potentially serve the international market, as well. Hence, through this project, it aims to implement international standards to ensure the acceptability and maximum safety of their products all around the world. 

Planned Development Project’s Background: 

The food processing sector of Ethiopia employs nearly 1 million people which accounts for around 2% of the total economically active population of this country. This industry has huge potential for further development in both the local and international markets. But this growth is being hindered by inadequate food safety measures and an unskilled workforce. Only around 20% of local food manufacturers including Addis Dallas Industries PLC implement national food safety standards in their production due to a lack of proper awareness, guidance, and maintenance. This led to a great number of food poisoning, adulteration, and other foodborne diseases for consumers. Also, the unskilled manpower and lack of proper knowledge regarding food processing, storage, hygiene and safety measures are slowing down the growth of the industry. To address these challenges, Addis Dallas Industries PLC will implement international food safety, quality, and  testing standards at its factory and laboratory as well as build a dual education structure for the skill development of low and mid-managers, and workers. 

Project partner background: 

The above-mentioned project is being implemented with the cooperation with Deutsche 

Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH or GIZ, a German development agency.
