Our Story

Success is not restricted to anyone!

People do not reach the garden of success, without passing through the stations of tiresome, failure and despair. The person with strong will does not prolong standing in these stations, and success is not measured by the position that a person occupies in his life, as much as it is measured by the hardships he overcomes. This is where our story began in a food company, Gulf General Trading and Raw Honey Store.
From the State of Kuwait in particular... Two good friends had many commonalities, most prominently honesty and credibility in work. One of them had a passion for honey, its quality and how to extract it from beehives from a young age. His uncle had a cattle, sheep and poultry farm, looking after some beehives for natural honey production.
At that time, what occupied his thinking and gave him great happiness in the farm were the bees; how they were raised, how honey was harvested from them. He monitored the smallest details, from the bee's search for nectar, until it harvested delicious honey of all kinds, and how it was packed and distributed to family, neighbors and friends.

With a strong will, there is surely a way always

Will is what drives you to the first step on the path of struggle, while determination is what keeps you on this path until the end.

The other friend had distinguished vision and strong administrative skills, a lover of progression and success, with an extraordinary ability to discipline, patience and adaptation. With his closeness and close relationship with his friend, he offered to establish a joint business that crowned that close passion and friendship with each other. He suggested many innovative ideas to work together, and among the ideas was starting a trade in honey by importing it from several countries that produce natural honey, directly from its sources according to best practices and international quality standards.

The journey of success was not easy. The two friends began their work after a careful and thorough study of the honey industry and its local and international markets. They delved into the dimensions of this industry, its components and details. They travelled to many countries popular for breeding and extracting natural honey. They even wore beekeeper suits and learnt about the method of extracting honey from beehives and discharging the honey into its own flasks. They looked into honey packaging techniques to maintain the quality of products their safety and healthy values for consumption.

The matter did not end here, but went beyond to discovering methods of cheating, deception and manipulation in this industry, despite the existence of laboratories that examine the quality and quality of different honey types, but there are still many companies that sell in genuine honey perfectly!

The first step of this project came with the aim of establishing a commercial entity concerned with the production and import of high-quality well-packaged pure honey from its original sources in New Zealand, Australia, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Yemen, Oman and Kuwait.

From there, the will of friends met to begin their journey towards establishing the Gulf Food General Trading Company with a distinct and unique administrative and technical blend, based on knowledge, know-how, honesty, integrity and transparency.

Our brands.. direct from the beehives!

The soul does not find comfort and stability except in challenges.

The two friends established a promising commercial entity in the name of the Gulf Food Company for General Trading, and the first specialized center for selling honey products was inaugurated in the State of Kuwait in 2018, with the brand name of Raw Honey Store to work together in the trade of raw honey, meaning honey produced directly from natural beehives without human intervention in its production. The Raw Honey Store brand included Manuka honey, pine, rose honey, chestnut, Sidr and mountain flowers honeys directly from beehives.

And so was the beginning... for a promising start!
