1964 - 1970
Our Founding Years
After Abdel Hadi Hammoudeh’s success in chemical trading in the early 1960s, Hammoudeh was founded in 1964 in Amman as a single company for the production of ready animal feed. With humble beginnings, Hammoudeh established his first plant in partnership with Provimi Holland, which reached a capacity of 5 metric tonnes per hour of the ready-made feed. The birth and rise of this establishment opened the door to see Hammoudeh become a leading Jordanian name in agriculture and animal feed products. His experience and enthusiasm for the chemical trading industry was not a thing of the past. He soon after decided to expand his business into the chemical sector, making Hammoudeh the primary agent and distributor for Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI). Hammoudeh’s entrepreneurial nature grew well into the late 60’s as he ventured into the hatchery business by investing in 12 egg hatching machines with total capacity of around 300 thousand eggs per month. Today, Hammoudeh Group is rated among the top private agricultural and chemical enterprises in Jordan.
