“We aim to enhance mothers' trust in A’Safwah products as a first choice for their children. This can be achieved by providing the most benefit possible in our premium products, and this is reflected by blending the benefits of natural milk and fruit flavor into a small 200ml pack, which gives children beneficial nutrients and a feeling of refreshment. We affirm our commitment to provide all consumers with high-quality, fresh, locally produced milk and dairy products,” the spokesperson added.
