Shaping the future
A History of Distinction and Diversification
For over a century, Groupe Rawji has maintained a strong and distinguished presence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Groupe Rawji has set the standard for business ethics and professional management, a privately held entity. Today, building on a group of companies in operation as far back as the early 1900s, it is one of the country’s most prominent business conglomerates, supported by its unparalleled distribution and logistics network.
The DRC is a vast country the size of Western Europe, with a population of over 90 million people and a unique, largely rural commercial environment. It is a market bursting with opportunity and potential. Few understand this business landscape as implicitly at Groupe Rawji. The Groupe has diversified across multiple industries using its knowledge and breadth of expertise. It owns leading businesses in several sectors and trades over a thousand products nationwide. Groupe Rawji can proudly claim to be an intrinsic part of life and business in the DRC – providing millions of people homes, food, and financial security.
International heritage, global ambitions
Over the years, the group has continuously expanded its trading activities into South Africa, Belgium, Germany, China, and India. Groupe Rawji provides direct employment to over 7,000 employees around the world.

Groupe Rawji’s success is built on strong foundations of integrity, responsibility and excellence. Since its earliest days it has combined these values with a fierce entrepreneurial spirit, an ability to adapt to changing markets and a relentless perseverance to succeed. Day after day, year after, the group seeks to:
• Promote the economic growth in the countries where it is established
• Ensure the quality of its products and services
• Guarantee a healthy and secure work environment
• Encourage development and a spirit of competition
