About us

6 decades of illustriousness in rice trading can conveniently be attributed to the groundbreaking efforts of the founder of Karim Karobar Company: the late Sheikh Abdul Aziz. Our progenitor was a man of great repute in the mercantile guild back in his day and garnered the vision of establishing a rice trading business in newly formed agricultural country of Pakistan in the year 1948.


The late sheikh Abdul Aziz had humble beginnings and even as his business flourished, he never left his grip on patience and forbearance. He set up his retail trading shop in Dandia Bazaar, which to date remains the central trading hub for grain merchants. The standards set by Karim Karobar Company were unparalleled in the local markets and over time the name Karim’s became synonymous with the highest level of quality in the rice trade; and gained the trust of rice merchants.
