It all began in 1976 as a modest shop operated by Mr. Ali Abdo, where he would buy and sell some of the most well-known brands in the market in very small numbers. The shop in particular was quite large, and the things were clearly small in quantity but in a big sense. He used to work all hours of the day and night to subtly introduce himself to new companies and clients. In 1992, he made the significant choice to turn it into an official establishment titled after his name, "Abdo Est For Manufacturing And Commerce." And because he was a hard worker for all intents and purposes, this business flourished quickly, and instead of selling wellknown brands, it now has its own line of food, pulses, and other reasonably priced things. Cans of food, oils, and a slew of other goods with a solid reputation both inside and outside Lebanon. After all, it's all about this businessman who, contrary to popular thought, always claimed, "We feed people from what we eat."
