Sumaria Group: one of the largest private sector groups in Africa.
Sumaria Group is one of the largest private sector groups in East Africa. It has business interests in consumer products, plastics, pharmaceuticals, Coca-Cola bottling, dairy products and agro-processing.
The Group started operations in Dar es Salaam in 1957 as a small trading company. Over the years, it moved from trading to manufacturing to become to a dominant player in the Tanzanian market space. The success came about from understanding the need of the local consumer and providing good quality products at the right price. The strategic thrust in the future is to replicate this success in the Pan-African market.
The Group is moving in the right direction. Today the Group has companies in Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique and Uganda making it one of Tanzania's first multinationals.
Poised for further growth, the Group continues to forge ahead in the true spirit of enterprise and excellence.
