    Born in 1930 in Haifa to a large Lebanese family, Antoine Nehme returned to Beirut in 1948.

    As the eldest son, Antoine Nehme’s early life had always been a challenge and in a life of poverty and suffering, He had always pursued his goal for betterment in achieving his full potential and to take care of both his direct & extended families.

    In the year 1953 he moved to Doha for work and opportunity.  Eager to grow together with the young nation of Qatar, Antoine Nehme setup a small domestic trading establishment a few years later in Doha to represent and build international brands in the local marketplace.
    Embodied with the true meaning of the word pioneer and independence, Antoine Nehme kept and admirable pace – striving to meet the ever increasing demands of a country in the path of rapid growth which continues till this day.
