An atmosphere of free discussion The day-long meeting focused on the superior performance of the Ross 308 in the region and what makes the Ross 308 the breed of choice, with particular attention given to overcoming supply challenges within Yemen. The seminar was highly interactive, and was greatly enhanced by customer contributions in an atmosphere of open discussions and honest opinions. “This was our first overseas gathering with the Yemeni industry,” says CEO of Pure Breed, Moeen Alkhatib. “We wanted to show our appreciation to our customers in Yemen - so seeing them appreciate the value of this informative seminar and its presentations is what made the meeting a success for us. Pure Breed is committed to supplying and supporting the Yemeni industry now and in the future”.
