El Wattar family is one of the oldest and most prestigious families that have worked in the field of processing animal casings in the world during the eighties of the nineteenth century, in Syria, the family’s homeland. The family passed the experience and secrets of the profession from one generation to the other, contributing to the spreading of the profession in more than one country around the world, and it is known in the casings industry, especially in the Arab countries that the name (El Wattar) was and still is a symbol for a career working in the field of casings, making more than one country use the name to describe the nature of the work in the casings field.
El Wattar Group of Companies was established in 1966, beginning with El Wattar factory in Beirut, Lebanon culminating more than seventy years in the industry at the hands of Mr. Hassan El Wattar, the founder of the Group. Thirty years later, after the opening of this factory, the two El Wattar facilities in Alexandria, Egypt joined with A.A.W – Hamburg, Germany to continue the work in the manner and form that provides satisfaction to our valued clients.
By 2003, the newest and largest facility (Sara Casings) was opened to join El Wattar Group name which has always been a symbol of quality, integrity and efficiency in the market of casings, and the brand name on its products has become a symbol of quality in itself crowning more than one hundred and thirty years of effort and sweat made by the grandparents to the grandchildren.
