Baladna’s slaughterhouse owns advanced systems to ensure the freshness and hygiene of the meat produced. The animals are fed natural feed, free from hormones or any other antibiotic residues, ensuring the highest quality of meat.
Not only does Baladna serve as a farm, but it also operates a restaurant that follows the farm-to-table concept. Being fresh and local, the food served meets high-quality standards. It has branches in The Pearl, Mall of Qatar and Al Khor, next to the farm itself.
