Two newly developed Wawan products were officially launched at the Wawan Classic, held in September this year.
The ISO Tamriya (date flavor) and Arabic Protein Coffee were launched at the event’s vending area, and sampled to all in attendance. Each product has been developed and produced to reap the best of results with distinctively Arab flavors.
Wawan founder, Adel Wawan, stated that the products are the first of their kind on the market. “We constantly strive to bring our customers the best of products that are perfectly safe for consumption and get them the best of results,” he said.
“With the ISO Tamriya and Arabic Coffee flavoured pre workout, we’ve created products which are uniquely regional. They have the same flavour as dates and traditional qahwah, something that has never been done before,” he explained.
The products will soon be made available at all branches across the Middle East.
