Zakaria Shams


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.

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 the Chairman and it is my aim to make "Shams" not just a family name but also a reputable and flourishing trade name, "Al-Shams".
