Over the last 20-30 years the Aujan Group business has been a diverse conglomerate with interests ranging from FMCG to packaging materials, hospitality, air travel, furniture and real estate. This diversity delivered portfolio balance, but in recent years we have recognized the need for operational focus particularly in a highly volatile MENA region.
We have embarked on a program to deliver an FMCG centered operating business and a complementary investment company covering a full variety of investment classes from equity, and fixed income to real estate, technology and private equity. That transition is in progress and a number of disposals have been completed in the last 5 years.
The investment company will provide a solid, reliable return to the shareholders and the FMCG centered business will enable us to fully focus on driving superior returns using our long experience and deep expertise in the regional beverages market.
Through this period of change, our core capabilities have not changed. We focus on building great brands, working with world class partners, taking managed risk in challenging geographies and driving growth through excellent people.

Cookies Policy – Information Aujan collects from you
a. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the websites to your interests. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of Aujan’s web site features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our education pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight educational information on your second and subsequent visits.
