The group

Al Ghurair is one of the largest diversified industrial enterprises in the Middle East, with global reach and business roots stretching back half a century. The Al Ghurair name is synonymous with the UAE and we are proud to be part of its rich heritage. With a history of pioneering innovative businesses built upon excellence, trust and responsibility, we have a deep commitment to enhancing life in the communities we serve.

    What we do

    Our core focus is on Foods, Construction, Resources and Properties, with additional sector participation in Energy, Printing, Retail and Education further emphasizing our level of diversity within the B2B and B2C sectors. We are a global Foods manufacturer; an industry leader in all key areas of Construction; an international Printing and Publishing House; an Education provider, and a Retail franchise overseer for world-renowned brands.

Where we operate

Based in our native Dubai, Al Ghurair directs operations spanning 20 countries on four continents – meeting vital human needs from nutrition to housing; energy to education. Our Food operations include flour mills in Dubai, Lebanon, Sudan, Algeria and Sri Lanka; our rice production facilities in Lahore, Pakistan serve Retail and Bulk markets throughout the Middle East and North Africa; and the one million packs of noodles we produce every day are seen on supermarket shelves from North Africa to Asia.

Then and now

The original Al Ghurair corporation was founded in Dubai at the beginning of the 1960’s and remained a single family entity for more than three decades. In the 1990’s the corporation evolved into two unique yet complementary businesses.

Our values

Al Ghurair’s reputation and success are based on strong values and an unwavering commitment to every enterprise we undertake. These values are embodied in our ‘diamond square’ symbol – fluid yet formed; both stable and dynamic in equal measure. The diamond reflects resilience and the quality we constantly strive for; the square denotes the focus we bring – and the merged image represents our unity of purpose. Quality, Commitment, Unity, Focus – the values that have shaped our past; still there to shape the future….
