ABU DHABI — Chocolates made of camel milk will soon hit the shelves in the UAE. The first samples were manufactured in Vienna and were shipped to the UAE for market testing, Al Ain Dairy announced yesterday, which successfully came out with the innovative chocolate with its Austrian partners.

Key customers to be targeted in the first phase are the duty free of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and the deluxe hotels. Al Ain Dairy, together with Hochleitner Ltd., will set up a manufacturing plant in Al Ain to become operational in the second quarter of 2006. The main raw material — camel milk — will be sourced from the Al Ain Dairy’s subsidiary camel farm. The existing camel farm is expected to add another 2,000 camels to meet the needs of the new chocolate factory.

“I have combined camel milk from Al Ain and honey from Yemen, and we end up with a healthy, tasty and delicious chocolate,” commented Georg Hochleitner, who is a recognised and reputed chocolate maker in Austria. He has successfully pioneered the first chocolate made of sheep milk.

“With our Austrian partners, Hochleitner Ltd. and Manner, we have over the past six months developed with great success a very fine and healthier chocolate,” said Saeed Khalfan Mater Al Romaithi, Chairman of the Al Ain Dairy. “We are the first company in the region to produce pasteurised camel milk. We will always strive to develop products that are close to our history and heritage,” added Al Romaithi.
