Ya Nakhletain fil 3alaly...!
Forbes conducted a survey to identify the top 40 Arab brands. Al Jazeera came in first followed by Emirates Airlines then Al Maraie Dairy products, whose milk brand incidentally constitutes one of my favorite childhood memories. The list is dominated by Gulf based companies but four Egyptian brands managed to make it on the list. Not that I give any credence to these kind of surveys but I heartily enjoyed seeing El Nakhla shisha tobacco outshine Orascom Construction which came at the tail end of the list. Check out their website for kicks and learn how "moassel" came into being http://www.nakhla.com.
