Late Shri. Mahadev Dattatray Datar
Founder
team

Back in 1983, when Dubai was emerging as a developing business hub, and a number of Asian communities were migrating to UAE in search of employment, our founder, late Shri. Mahadev Dattatray Datar pioneered a small business named Al Adil Trading Company LLC. It was actually a tiny grocery shop in a rented space at Bar Dubai. Mahadevji had neither entrepreneurial experience nor strong financial backing. Until then he had only worked in a couple of companies as an employee. When he noticed that the Indian community in UAE desperately need foodstuff like flours, spices, pickles, chutneys etc. of their choice, but couldn’t get it easily, the idea of opening a store suddenly clicked in his mind. With sheer hard work, honesty, commitment and discipline, he managed the business so skilfully that over the years it not only won the confidence of thousands of customers, but grew to be reckoned among the most reputed business establishments in Dubai.
