Almuntazah Markets is a well-known supermarket chain in the Kingdom of Bahrain. It is believed to be the biggest supermarket chain in the kingdom. Al Muntazah Markets is the subsidiary of Almeer Group which was founded in 1952 by Jalal Almeer (1923-2000). In 1984, the Almeer Group anticipated the need by Bahrainis on low-to-medium incomes for conveniently situated community supermarkets offering quality food at affordable prices, by opening the first Al Muntazah Market outlet in Muharraq. The Al Muntazah footprint has been steadily extended across the country with a further 10 supermarkets, making it the most popular supermarket chain in the country with 11 extensively stocked branches. The outlets are conveniently located in major residential areas to provide ‘on your door step’ shopping for the local community.
In 2013, Al Muntazah Markets expanded its non-food retail business by opening Al Muntazah Stationery in Muharraq, exclusively selling stationery products and providing photocopying services aimed at businesses, educational institutes and students.
The company operates in accordance with the highest standards of health, safety and hygiene. In the best interests of the health of society, the supermarkets do not sell cigarettes; nor do they sell pork, or products containing alcohol, in line with Islamic principles.
