Executive Board

  • The Founder Respectful Mahdi Gadad

    The founder, respectful Mahdi Gadad, was born in 1935 at Azizia, near Tripoli, Libya. In 1942, at the very young age of 7, Mr. Mahdi Gadad started his business career, along with his father, Mr. Ibrahim Gadad and his brother Mr. Ali Gadad, in the agriculture business dealing in vegetables, fruits and grains.

    Later, in a following stage, Mr. Mahdi Gadad developed his business style by marketing his products direct to customers by establishing his own outlet.

    In 1950, he and his uncle Mr. Mohammed Gadad interest in business turned to small scale production by establishing an olive oil mill and filtering unit. In 1955, he started crushing the olives’ seeds by using an hammer mill added to the filtering section. This has given a springboard for him and for his generation in the field of  agribusiness.

    His interest swept from olive oils on to the poultry feed business. In 1990, a small feed mill was started to feed the local market by producing and marketing the product to farmers directly.

    Al Sahl Group (SG) was found in 2004 as a partnership business. As it grew, it was re-established as a group. The growing need of the end user in the Agri-Business and in consumable products, led the SG to broaden its horizons in the industry of being an environmentally friendly enterprise. After the decision was made by the board of the directors to re-structure the group, today, we are pleased to announce that the group comprise 18 companies under SG.

  • Message from Deputy Chairman Marwan Gadad

    "I would like to thank you and it is my pleasure to work with our staff and business partners."
    Libya particularly is considered to be our focused geographic market where we intend to achieve sustainable long-term growth and maintain leadership position in the market being environmental friendly businesses.
    Al Sahl Group (SG) growth will provide the basis for more investments and value creations to all stakeholders.

    The last few years have brought both challenges and change; we adopted a corporate structure that allows us to be a more competitive business and market player. The ongoing economic and social changes have forced the attention of all our employees to improve performance and positioned us for success in markets we encounter. We’ve made excellent progress, but we have more to do. We will continue to take decisive actions to strengthen and grow our group in a sustainable way. Today, SG is wonderfully reshaped into food, non-food processing entity and retailing.
    We have well motivated and skilful human resource that is the backbone of SG and hence, enables us to achieve our objectives with great distinction and success. Quality of work is our commitment to the client for which we consider proper guidelines to our operational procedures.
    Our business facilities have made us capable of meeting complex challenges with excellence, which will continue in the future.

    "As we instantly navigate these challenges, we will not lose sight of our long-term vision to manage to deliver superior sustainable products to the nation."

    In fact, our senior management teams and board of directors keep working on a new sustainability strategy that potentially increases the number of commitments and targets we intend to reach in the coming five years and also new products and solutions to the market.
    This development is reflected by enlarging the product platform and by introducing creative customized end products to the market. We firmly seek to strike the right balance between profits and principles. We will take courageous stands and we will continue to be active on behalf of issues such as environmental sustainability, equality, assurance and corporate social responsibilities.

    Corporate social responsibility remains high on the agenda of SG. Our contribution to community growth, culture and development is a key driver for ensuring the health and well-being of the people who build this community and those in our group who push forward in that direction. We are determined to scale greater heights by providing product and services that exceed our expectations.

    Finally, I would like to thank each and everyone in SG and look forward to work together, to conquer newer frontiers and achieve greater success in the future.
