Camel Milk is Getting Popular in the America, Thanks to a Saudi Entrepreneur


A US camel milk company founded by a Saudi entrepreneur in collaboration with Amish and Mennonite farmers has witnessed a huge potential in the America market. Walid Abdul-Wahab, who grew up in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and moved to the America in 2008, set up his camel milk business Desert Farms in the America after identifying this niche market of milk alternative among the US health-conscious customers. Since then, the business is scaling up quickly, thanks to the fact that camel milk has great health benefits and could provide a better alternative to cow’s milk than other products in the market, according to recent article published on CNN. The article also compared the price and healthy benefits of camel milk with cow milk and explored the growth of the camel milk market in the US.

In the America, cow milk is one of the top food allergy sources. An estimated 36% of Americans over the age of ten are lactose intolerant and unable to break down the sugar in milk. Although the current milk market is full of dairy alternatives including almond, oat, coconut, rice and soy milks, none of these options is an ideal substitute as they are either nutritionally suboptimal or less tasty, says Walid Abdul-Wahab, founder of Desert Farms. The article cited Technavio’s Global Camel Milk Market Analysis 2018-2022 and demonstrated that despite the higher price than cow milk, camel milk’s demand is increasing steadily in the US and around the world.

According to Technavio’s latest market research, the global camel milk market is expected to grow at an impressive CAGR of around 7% from 2018 to 2022, reaching $15.05 billion in 2022. This market report also identifies Al Ain Dairy, Camelicious, Desert Farms, IDJ, The Camel Milk, and VITAL CAMEL MILK as some of the world’s leading camel milk companies.
