Al Dahra ACX Global has been awarded the United States Presidential “E” Award for exports and is listed amongst the top 20 exporters in the United States. In 2015, Al Dahra ACX exceeded its closest rival by a margin of 23% in forage exporter volumes, and became the fourth biggest exporter of large food and feed in North America, just behind Cargil and Socular, and well ahead of brands like Bunge and Zennoh.
Al Dahra ACX Global is the No.1 forage exporter in the United States, and one of the leading exporters of roughage and feed products in North America. For over 35 years, the company has maintained its top exporter status in international forage markets, especially those of East Asia and the Middle East.
Furthermore, Al Dahra ACX Global processing facilities are strategically located in prime hay-growing regions of the Western United States with close proximity to major sea ports. Al Dahra ACX Global operates three production facilities including Ellensburg, Washington State in the Pacific Northwest, Stockton California in the Pacific Midwest, and Wilmington California in the Pacific Southwest. The company produces over 700,000 metric tons annually from its various hay export processing facilities.
To complement its strong presence in strategically-located forage growing areas, Al Dahra ACX Global has started its own cultivation on owned and controlled land in Southern California and Eastern Arizona through Al Dahra Farms USA and continues to invest in growing its farming lands portfolio. Its annual cultivation capacity is upwards of 40,000 metric tons of alfalfa and other grass hay. In the near future, the company plans to add a new 7,500 acres of land to its land bank in various parts of the United States for the cultivation of alfalfa and other crops.
