El-Shiaty family originated from Tanta and values its roots tremendously. Nestled in more than 100 acres planted mostly with palm trees and vine trees, the family country house is currently being used to serve the Tanta locals.
The dedicated Mr. Hamed El-Shiaty and Mrs. Olfat El Shiaty continuously exert effort to maintain the land. The family has learnt from Mr. Hamed that being part of society is essential and that it is important to give back to the society that raised you when you can.
The land has more than 100 goats producing organic dairy products. It also has a laboratory used to serve agricultural university students from across the country. These students come every summer to gain experience through internships and practical work.
Al Shiaty family's social corporate responsibility proves that successful corporations are capable of making a positive difference in their communities.
Growing up, Mr. Ashraf El-Shiaty was highly fond of horses. With time, he passed this love onto the rest of the family. His love for horses grew when his father bought his own in 1973. Today, Mr. Ashraf’s stud consists of over 20 quality mares and a promising stallion. Mr. Ashraf's true-bred Egyptian-Arabian horses are a source of happiness and pride for him and his family.
