Al Muhaidib Group was founded in 1946 by the late Abdulkadir Al Muhaidib, who concentrated on the trading of steel and cement.
Today, under the stewardship of chairman Sulaiman, Abdulkadir’s son, the group is one of the most prominent groups in the region. The group entered into the food products industry in 1959, marketing and distributing rice. And although this sector has remained the fastest-growing within the group, the firm relates its overall success to diversification.
