Abu Dhabi Co-operative Society


In the year 1981 a group of ambitious technocrats and seven committed professionals put together Abu Dhabi’s first supermarket and little did they know that they had just witnessed the birth of the state’s retailing revolution. With the blessings and eminent guidance of the then ruler, the late H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, sound and seasoned promoters, excellent business partners and some of the industry’s best talents, Abu Dhabi Co-operative Society today is the premier retail organization in the region having 17 state of the art retail venues spanning 500,000sqft., 86,000 customers every single day and 1700 qualified and trained professionals from 56 countries.

With core interest in the retail industry, Abu Dhabi Co-operative Society is primarily in the business of hypermarkets, supermarkets, shopping malls, retail parks, large concept chain stores, franchise operations, retail property management, real estate and investments. A joint stockholding company, the Abu Dhabi Co-op is the flagship of Consumer Co-operatives Union and governed by the ‘Ministry of Labour & Social Affairs’.
