30 years ago, we were inspired by the traditional souks in the Arabian culture and have modernized this concept by bringing it into modern trade. This business solution has helped us over the years to not only become pioneers but also to be renowned as trendsetters. By 2013, GFI maintained its trade name and carried on this legacy in the market with a new brand name, Bayara.
Our journey to success has been full of life and flavor. We have had many remarkable milestones on this voyage and would like you to join us.
