“It is with a deep-rooted conviction and with the historic expertise of our group that we strive every day to help build the present day and future Morocco. Whatever the size of the projects we develop, our values are immutable: quality, innovation, and a commitment to create harmony and a better living”. Abdelali BERRADA SOUNNI
Chairman of Bgroup



A forward-looking group

The Palmeraie group, now called Bgroup, was born more than 45 years ago from the vision of Mr. Abdelali BERRADA SOUNNI, who succeeded in building what is now one of Morocco’s largest groups.

For nearly half a century, the group has been preserving its authenticity, founding principles, innovation, quality and commitment. B Group has embraced modernity to maintain its leadership position in its various lines of business.

Initially specialized in the design, manufacture and distribution of home textile products, the Group succeeded in meeting the changing economic requirements of its era, by adapting to change and by anticipating the challenges of the future. It diversified its businesses by developing and launching major tourism and real estate projects while continuing to develop its industrial sector.

Ever since, the common ground between all the Group’s achievements stemmed from its founders’ deeply rooted spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship and determination to do well, to deliver quality over the long term.

A clear vision of its contribution to society

Innovation, quality and commitment line at the core of all the Group’s projects. These values permeate each line of business and constitute the linchpin for Bgroup’s development since its creation in the early 1960s.

These core values also define the B Group vision. These are based on:
  • Strengthening its leadership position in terms of product quality and innovation
  • Diversification of its lines of business by investing in sectors of vital importance for the future
  • Internationalization with a particular focus on Sub-Saharan Africa

Enhanced governance

In the framework of its new 2020 vision, Palmeraie Group, now known as Bgroup, has adopted a new organizational structure that will allow it to further develop the group and its current businesses, ensure sustainable performance, and develop new profitable business activities that are naturally consistent with the country’s social development and economic policies.

Bgroup, is the story of an exciting adventure to form a strong and independent family group, whose sustainability is ensured by an organizational structure based on 4 pillars:
  • The “B Group, Family Office”, in charge of articulating the group’s highly strategic orientations, and setting up and facilitating the family’s governance bodies. This entity is chaired by Mr. Abdelali BERRADA SOUNNI and has Mr. Hicham BERRADA SOUNNI and Mr. Saad BERRADA SOUNNI as Vice Chairs;
  • A Foundation which is the vehicle for major citizen actions, also chaired by Mr. Abdelali BERRADA SOUNNI. It embodies the company’s values;
  • Palmeraie Developpement which comprises Luxury Real Estate, Social and Intermediate Real Estate, and Hospitality and Leisure Activities. This structure aims to develop its business in Africa and is chaired by Mr. Hicham BERRADA SOUNNI;
  • Palmeraie Industries & Services which comprises Industrial and Distribution (Dolidol) businesses, as well as new businesses under development, namely, education, agriculture, quarries & mining. This group is chaired by Mr. Saad BERRADA SOUNNI.
