The Camel Milk in the Gulf Food Festival

Turning camel from an old age animal to a sustainable food animal was my dream. Camel is Turning from a Beast of Burden to a Modern Farm Animal. This dream is coming true as the camel is making its space as a food security animal. Even, camel is performing better outside of its original habitat. Camel Journey ~ From its Original Habitat to Modern World.

Some people were selling/marketing camel milk from other countries like Australia and India. Shrey Kumar from India (the Co-founder of the  Aadvik foods) also met me there.

I also met Hani from Australi (Auslink Investment), who was also looking for the camel milk powder export.
