MD - Mukwano Group

MR. ALYKHAN KARMALI

The word Mukwano means "friendship" in Luganda, a vernacular language spoken in central part of Uganda (Buganda region). It is a word that is recognizable in the entire Great Lakes region, just like the Mukwano Group of Companies is!

Like the word intimates, the Mukwano Group has become a friend to millions by touching lives through high quality and affordable wide range of Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCGs) that can be found in all households in the region. Our products guarantee 100% customer satisfaction and we attach utmost value to customer feedback in our quest for excellence in all that we do.

Our production processes entail care for the environment with strict adherence to national environmental guidelines and policies.

Together with a strong presence in the FMCG industry, we have diversified our business interests to include agriculture, real estate / property development, logistics / supply chain and financial services. Agriculture for us is very important as it is the major economic activity not only in the region but the entire African continent. It not only puts bread on our tables but also provides raw materials to feed our manufacturing plants.

Most importantly, however, Mukwano has never forgotten its roots and its people. There is a wise saying, "when you do not know where you are coming from, you will not know where you are going" and we know that business sustainability can only be achieved by embracing our communities, our people.

Over the years, our corporate social responsibility (CSR) contribution to the health, education and sports sectors has made the difference in the lives of countless people in Uganda and beyond. We are strong, devoted and extremely passionate about what we do at Mukwano! Welcome to our world!
