Business One

al-hajeryThe Kuwaiti conglomerate MNH (Mohamad Naser Al-Hajery & Sons) opened the country’s first retail pharmacy in 1946. It was founded by Mohamed Naser Al-Hajery and his cousin Ibrahim Yacoub Al-Hajery, under the name ‘The Kuwaiti Drug Store’. The Kuwaiti Drug Store was the first company to introduce the lifesaving drug penicillin to the Kuwait market. As pharmaceuticals and medical supplies division has historically been the core of MNH, it flourished greatly and has grown to over 16 pharmacies across the country. In the 1970s, the Kuwait Drug Store was renamed to Mohamed Naser Al-Hajery & Sons Co. (MNH). Al Hajery continues to bring new products to Kuwait to further its tradition of being a trail-blazer in the country’s pharmaceutical retail field.
