Mercato is part of the AL Zarooni Group of Companies. The Group was founded in the early sixties and has since diversified in size and stature across various segments of the Emirate’s business world.
Essentially the Group is in the business of real estate, construction, construction-related materials, industrial plastics, industrial garments and other industrial related components on a local, regional and international level, as well as wholesale foods.
In the construction sector, the Group is one of the largest contracting companies within Dubai. The Group has also established one of Dubai’s most innovative and landmark shopping malls, Mercato, which was an inspired creation of Abdul Rahim Mohammed Al Zarooni, a seasoned UAE entrepreneur with an eye for artistic excellence. Abdul Rahim Al Zarooni had wished to build something unique, something that would be good for Dubai and something that would stand out as a landmark. After traveling extensively to the U.S.A., Canada and Europe he found his inspiration in Italy and arrived at the concept of Mercato, which he brought to life here in Dubai.
A distinguished individual in the business fraternity, Mr. Abdul Rahim Al Zarooni is well admired in the community for his efforts and personal involvement in philanthropy.
