The group was cordially welcomed by Mr.Essam Abdei Hamed Ali, the Health & Safety Officer for Gulf Mushroom Products Co. He provided an explanation regarding the production and packaging processes, as also the HR functions of the organization to the students. Students also got the opportunity to see the all the operations of the factory. They visited the rooms where mushrooms were cultivated.
