FMCG - Fashion - Retail - Wholesale - Manufacturing - Food Packaging


We started as a wholesaler of foodstuffs under the name of Shankar Trading Co. LLC in 1985 in the local Al Ras Market. Since then the group has grown organically into a diversified business house under the banner of The Giant Group with interests in Wholesale, Distribution, Retail and Manufacturing of consumer goods.

Present Scenario

Today, we are importers and distributors of consumer goods, food and grocery products, and are the largest importers of specialised Filipino food-stuffs in the Gulf region, with an extensive product range and constant availability. We operate a chain of modern Supermarkets spread across the Emirates. We have joint venture interests in manufacturing, under the name of Gulf Footwear.
