In 1932, Abdul-Azeem Sharawi, the elder among 6 brothers of a family
well-known for their business in Jerusalem and later also in Amman,
decided to expand business by establishing a new company called
Sharawi & Bros Co.".
success of this company in international and domestic trade laid
the cornerstone for a new line of business for the family; mainly
in the manufacturing industry, which the partners decided to go
into, by establishing Sharawi Bros chewing gum factory during the
1960's. The factory was planned to be located just outside of Amman,
the capital of Jordan, and it did not take long until the building
saw the light end of 1965.
production of the famous Sharawi Chewing Gum started in 1966; which
became the #1 leader in its field in the region in a very short
period of time. The first production was called SB chewing gum,
packed in the form of 4 dragees in a small cubic package.
chewing gum became very popular due to its quality and flavors.
Within a few years, additional types of gum were introduced like
the Wribson gum, Wribson Sticks, and the 2-pack dragees which is
now the most popular product - especially the Mastic-flavored 2-pack.
set a high level of dedication to quality and developing the products,
along with the high morale of the members of the production teams
as a result of the entrepreneurial management style; the factory
expanded to 6 times its initial starting size. It grew to being
one of the leading manufacturers in its field; producing many kinds
of chewing gum in various flavors; and exporting to many countries
by Day, more and more people enjoy Chewing Sharawi Gum.
