Meet Our Team

Zakaria Shams

Founder & Co-Director

Our Company was established in 1993 and we have rapidly expanded our business over the years in the agricultural and food industries. This expansion is due to the success of our relationships with clients and staff as one big family. It has long been my dream to establish an Integrated Food Industry Complex and I am grateful to have accomplished it with the help and support of my family, friends and colleagues.

Yahya Shams


I started in the company immediately after graduation from University and have taken various positions in agricultural operations, the supervision and development of our farms and home-produce projects. I am committed to the development of our company’s trading reputation and to the improvement of our performance.

Ahmed Shams

Managing Director

After graduating in IT it will come as no surprise that I started in the company as IT Manager and was responsible for the development of its IT system. I am now proud to be Managing Director and it is my aim to make "Shams" not just a family name but also a reputable and flourishing trade name, "Al-Shams".

Ian McIntyre

Commercial Director

I have successfully run several companies over the years and have a long-standing association and friendship with Mr. Zakaria Shams. I am enjoying the challenge of working with Al-Shams Agro Group, a company which has all the elements necessary for success – a superb, up-to-date facility; motivated, enthusiastic and well-trained staff and a sound financial structure. I believe the company has a stellar future in worldwide juice and concentrates markets.
