Investing in the world
OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
At Savola, strategic investment is our specialty, and we know that expertise and experience are what counts. We invest in our core sectors and region (food and retail in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey) on the basis of a track record dating back to 1979. This specialized approach means that we can invest our capital effectively and generate maximum profits for investors and shareholders.
At Savola, we have been investing in our regional food sector for almost four decades. Through our Savola Foods company, we now own a broad portfolio of B2C (business to consumer) brands with a presence in approximately 30 countries. We also invest in some of the major food companies in the kingdom including, Almarai and Herfy.
Savola Retail includes one of Savola’s leading companies, Panda Retail Company. It is responsible for the group’s managed investments in the retail sector and makes a considerable contribution to our overall profits. In 2015, Panda Retail Company recorded turnover of SAR 13.5 billion.
Aside from our managed investments in the food and retail sectors, we also pursue capital growth through our portfolio of non-managed investments. As of 2015, the largest Savola investments were Almarai (in which we own a 36.52% stake), Herfy Food Services Company (49%) and Kinan International Company for Real Estate Development (29.9%).
