Where goodness
gets created…

In the land of the tall buildings, Dubai, is where the story begins. Envisioning great expertise in the world of culinary, Gulf Processing Industries LLC was established by Sharaf Group in 2004 as a joint venture with MH enterprises. Since then, pure goodness and has been getting packed into jars & bottles, to help you start your day right, or indulge in that comfort food. Whenever you’ve asked for something, we’ve gone & created that product, and added it to our product range. And that’s how we now have one of the greatest ranges in culinary covering over 25 categories. And they are all delicious, we can assure you.

And then there was

Our little labour of love was born in 2011.

With products that were already loved by people all over the world, we thought, why not take our commitment to excellence a step further, and pack all our expertise under one name? And then, our range of sauces, condiments, mayonnaise, spreads, baking mixes and cooking pastes came together under the brand that is Herman.

Loved by all, across the globe...

With tastes that capture a global audience, Herman has since reached over 40 countries across the globe. Ensuring quality standards worldwide, the products are HACCP, ISO 22000:2005. FSSC 22000:2010, BRC & HALAL, Kosher & YUM certified.


Being the best is about more than just great taste and excellent standards. It`s about caring and making sure what you eat is as pure as love. And we know you will give that love right back, as we`ve seen Herman grow leaps and bounds over its short life. Keep it coming, and we promise we will too.

So much more goodness,
so much more love.
