Camel cheese coming soon to supermarket shelves

Posted on 23/01/2012

A local company has proved the doubters wrong by producing the UAE's first commercial batch of camel milk cheese.

But after three years of work, scientists at the Emirates Industry for Camel Milk and Products in Dubai, which sells its products under the Camelicious brand name, have solved the problem. By April three types of camel ...  >>MORE
