Chairman Message

If the last century was about meeting human needs, the new millennium is about matching human aspirations. We live in a world where the young are reaching higher, dreaming bigger and demanding more; a world that is challenging the limits of hope and possibility.

Nowhere is this more strikingly visible than in the Kingdom of Bahrain a country that wakes up every morning a little younger in age but infinitely more ambitious in spirit.

As a diversified holding company, we are active in a wide range of industries including FMCG, Hospitality & Real Estate. In all parts of the business we are dedicated to delighting our stakeholders and “creating memorable moments” for our customers. Wherever we operate, we strive to ensure that ‘A Holding’ Company takes a balanced approach to all stakeholders, adding value through managerial capabilities and local knowledge, as well as taking significant care to consider the community, people and the surrounding environment through a wide range of corporate and socially responsible initiatives.

A core part of our long-term strategy is the desire to work with world class partners across the globe and as part of this, we signed franchise deals with the renowned high-end luxury International brands. Since then, we have combined our regional experience with restaurant industry knowledge to build a broad based and sustainable capability within the Bahrain market.

Our hospitality and real estate business in the Kingdom of Bahrain has evolved from primarily focusing on leisure tourism, to a growing business also offering adventure tourism, business hospitality and real estate development.

In FMCG business, we continue to develop a distribution and supply of imported food products from across the globe with IFI (I-Food Imports) company. Across the region we have entered into supply agreements and technical service arrangements and expect this relationship to develop further over the coming years.

Our simple mantra for entrepreneurship: “Think big. Think fast. Think ahead.”

We will think bigger. We will think faster. But, most important of all, we will think better & innovative– to stay ahead of competition and of our times.

We constantly strive to provide value adding products and services that support the growth and diversification of Bahrain’s economy.

Welcome to the ‘A Holding’ Company.
