From March to July 2013, Como Facilities Management Services made several agreements with local Sohar based suppliers for the supply of locally produced food products such as fresh meat, fish, vegetables and spices.

In a joint effort by ORPIC and COMO to increase the amount of Omani-made materials used at all ORPIC projects, the management of both companies carefully studied all options, including the adjustment of menus, time of servings and tastes to provide all cooked food with only Omani produced material.

Clients at ORPIC have praised the use of fresh products compared to frozen ones and this convinced the management of both companies of the long term benefits of their in-country initiative and will continuously observe the possibility of increasing Omani materials in their processes.
