About Haleeb:
Over the years, Haleeb Foods Limited (HFL) has become a popular feature of family
life throughout Pakistan. The first product launched to the many by HFL was Haleeb
milk and today HFL has expanded its business to include Dairy Queen, Tea Max, Just
Fruit, Tropico, Fun Milk, and other dairy products to its production and packaging
lines. HFL has the peculiarity of being the first company in Pakistan to use Tetra
Paks novel packaging formats, Tetra Brick Aseptic (TBA) and Tetra Fino Aseptic
(TFA). Apart from its extensive nationwide distribution network, covering both urban
and semi urban areas, Haleeb Foods is also serving international markets in Central
Asia, Middle East, Australia and Europe.
Haleeb Foods Ltd. was incorporated on July 1st, 1984 with a capital of PKR. 46
Million under the name of Chaudhary Dairies Limited which was renamed as CDL
Foods Limited and now it is known to be as Haleeb Foods Limited. The commercial
production process started with UHT liquid milk from May 21, 1986. The liquid milk
was the first product launched in the market. The company started its operations in
1985 having the state of the art plant in the entire dairy sector of Pakistan.
Comprising an area of 32 Acres, this plant had a capacity of producing 80,000 liters
per day of milk. Then Haleeb Foods Ltd. entered in a franchise agreement with
Cedilac, France. Under this agreement, the company launched Candia range of
value added liquid milk product and also had access to latest production
techniques, and marketing practices. In 1998 Haleeb Foods Launched UHT cream
and Skimz Milk Powder which featured 0 Fat Max Calcium.
In the year 2001 Haleeb Foods introduced Dairy Queen standardized and
homogenized pure UHT Milk with 3.5% fat and 8.9 solid non fats available in a
modern 6-layered Tetra Pak Fino Packaging. At an affordable price and a three
months shelf life; this brand won the hearts of consumers all over Pakistan.
Haleeb further penetrated into the market with the launch of FunMilk, Just Fruit and
Tea Max (Tea Whitener), which led to added contribution towards growth. New
management was introduced at HFL that hosted a completely fresh and modern
approach towards business. The new ideology of work was shared; By thinking hard
we are plotting a strategy that will safely steer our company to uninterrupted
VMFG (Pvt) Ltd acquired majority shareholding in Haleeb Foods Limited and took
over the management of the company. The new management led to one of the most
remarkable turnarounds in the contemporary corporate Pakistan- a milestone

achieved by executing the plotted strategy. With a keen focus on improving the
companys top line as well as the bottom line the company improved its profitability
and focused on innovation and launch of new brands. Moreover with the brands
being renovated HFL has proudly developed a platform to bounce back and reach
out to the consumer while securing their trust and happiness.

Market Analysis:
Pakistan is at the 4th position in milk producing countries of the world. Pakistan
ranks 2nd in buffalo milk production and 12th in cattle milk production. (Khan,
2008). Milk and milk products represent 27% of the total household expenditure on
food items in Pakistan. Milk plays a vital role in building a healthy society and can
be used as a vehicle for rural development, employment and slowing down the
migration of the rural population. Milk and milk products provide nearly one third of
world's intake of animal protein (FAO, 1998). This may not be true for Pakistan
where milk provides more than half of the 17.4 9 of animal protein available for
each person daily. The total milk yield in Pakistan is 33.20 million tons and entire
dairy processing industry was using only about 15% of it (Hemani & Khan, 1997).
The importance of milk as a cash crop was always neglected in the past. While
comparing the value of milk with other cash crops, it has been stated that milk has
a value about 60% higher as compared to wheat and cotton together (Tanvir, 2007)
Milk production and marketing in Pakistan is dominated mainly by the informal
private sector, consisting of various agents, each performing a specialized role at a
particular point in the supply chain. These consist of producers, collectors,
middlemen, processors, traders, and consumers.

Competitive Analysis:
The consumption of processed milk in the form of pasteurized and UHT milk is
growing in Pakistan. This shift in consumer behavior can be attributed to overall
cultural and behavioral changes due to globalization, rise in per capita income,
change in life style, health consciousness and increasing availability of substitutes.
Furthermore, packed milk is considered safe for consumption in comparison to open
milk which is considered contaminated, adulterated and carrier of several disease
causing pathogens and elements (Moeezuddin, 2004).
