Albwardy Investment is our group holding company founded in the mid 70’s by UAE national, Ali Saeed Juma Albwardy, to oversee the varying interests held whether under sole ownership, joint ventures or with equity stakes of varying sizes.
Over the last 40 years the group has added many leading global brands and companies to its portfolio.
With an annual turnover exceeding one billion US dollars, we operate in a number of business sectors ranging from food retailing, food distribution, construction, engineering, hospitality and hotel ownership. We represent many international food retail leading brands through exclusive distribution and partnership agreements.
Our business interests consist of sole ownership, joint ventures and equity stakes in leading companies across the globe with operations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and South America.
Headquartered in Dubai, today the Albwardy portfolio consists of over 30 highly diversified companies and employs over 5,000 multi-national, multi-lingual staff, supported by a network of global partners.
Individual companies within the group are run as totally autonomous business units with their own dedicated management teams whilst their board at all times contains at least one of the company directors with Mr. Albwardy always being in the chair himself.
Companies within the group, many of whom hold ISO accreditation, are monitored by the group management team allowing any necessary actions or decisions to be made promptly, this structure enables the group to operate with an extremely small but efficient head office mainly containing the internal audit team and management accountants together with the chairman and directors.
