More than fifty years ago, my father, Jassim Al Wazzan, a young and energetic businessman
noticed the approach of a cultural and economical shift in the Kuwaiti society.
He knew then what we know now, that successful businesses must be consistent, reliable,
and committed to strong business foundations. Providing quality products, being
an honest partner, working hard, and being patient are what most responsible businesses
aspire to achieve. However, to be successful and sustain a profitable business,
the people behind the business must deliver quality, be resilient, and be willing
to explore new opportunities and markets. These principles continue to be the foundation
upon which Mezzan Holding Company was built. They represent Mezzan’s origins, its
culture and heritage, and where it stands at present – industry leaders across multiple
industries; and where it’s headed – investing in regional and global partnerships
and business ventures that compliment and leverage resources.
Mezzan Holding Co. is more than a collection of great brands that are owned under
one umbrella, it is one of the Gulf’s largest and most diversified food, nonfood,
and service providers. Its success has come, by building a business based on strong
leadership, strategic vision, and a deep understanding of diverse industries, talented
and hardworking teams and partnerships, and aligning itself and its business strategies
to achieve excellence.
Jassim Al Wazzan’s views and practices continue with our businesses today. While
the changing global market presents new challenges, Mezzan Holding Company meets
those challenges, just as my father met them over a half century ago – we let our
principles guide us; stay competitive by paying attention to the details; invest
in strong leadership, structure and transparency; inspire our people and encourage
creativity and innovation; supports our businesses by leveraging their strengths
and resources; and take full responsibility towards our communities.
Most importantly, Mezzan Holding Co. continues to provide the high-performance services,
valuable and new partnerships and enjoyable products and services which our customers,
clients and communities expect.
