History

A family business rooted in a strong sense of purpose going back generations.

ADG would not exist as it currently does without the leadership of our founder, His Excellency Sheikh Abdullah Al-Dabbagh. An honest, compassionate and selfless man, he committed to his activities and causes totally. During his career he was the third Minister of Agriculture in Saudi Arabia and the first Saudi agricultural engineer and he continued to be passionately involved in public service after leaving office. His life was a constant process of finding ways to convert his activities – professional and personal – into outcomes that would benefit the people of Saudi Arabia.
