At a meat processing plant in Doha's sprawling industrial zone, masked workers toil through the night heaving boxes of raw chicken across a pristine factory floor.Khalaf says this is proof Qatar can survive without having to rely on neighbors who have shunned it.Qatar, a small desert country, relies heavily on imports to feed its 2.7 million mostly foreign population and nearly half of Qatar's food comes across the border from Saudi Arabia.Like many local businesses, Qatar Meat imports all the meat that it processes and packages.As for relations with Gulf neighbors, Khalaf says he is already looking elsewhere.
