Abul Khair Group, one of the leading conglomerates of Bangladesh started its journey as a tobacco marketing company back in 1953. With headquarter based in the commercial capital Chittagong, the group has now flourished into a multi-business portfolio of fast moving consumer goods, steel, cement, ceramics, marble, shipping and trading business. We, the consumer goods division of Abul Khair Group or commonly known as AKCGD started our journey in 1994 when Starship Condensed Milk was first launched. Starship still continues to lead the market with dominant market share.

In 1997 MARKS Full Cream Milk Powder was first brought into the powdered milk category. Since then it has gradually become the major player in the market. Over the years MARKS has successfully acquired an iconic stature through providing with superior quality as well as making significant social contributions. MARKS Allrounder - the only talent search show for school going children and proudly organized by AKCGD, is widely popular among all the people as it brings the hidden talents into the light.

In the year of 1998 we launched Starship Mango Juice in the beverage category. The product line was then extended to Starship Chocolate Milk.

SEYLON Tea first entered into the market in 2004. And just within a decade it successfully became the highest selling tea brand in Bangladesh building people’s immense confidence in it. SEYLON was the first to introduce stapleless teabags in Bangladesh. It is also the pioneer to bring in pyramid shaped teabags.

In 2006 we got into the snacks market with Shaad Chanachur. The brand was later re-launched as Shaad Kurmure Chanachur in different variants with new flavor and taste. Lastly, candies with four different flavors - caramel, green mango, milk and litchi were brought into the confectionary market under the brand name Kids.

AKCGD now caters not only to the huge demand in home but also to the Middle Eastern countries along with India, Pakistan and Nepal. With certificates from organizations like ISO, HACCP, BSTI, we are well recognized both nationally and internationally.
