The Extraordinary General Assembly of the Qatar Company For Meat and Livestock Trading (Mawashi) has approved the amendment of Act 2 in the statute of the company, renaming the company to Widam Food Company as a Qatari shareholding company that focuses on animal transport, in addition to the management of a number of slaughterhouses in the country and a branch in Sudan.
