The saga of the Cosmos Group began with Haji Abdul Samad Pardesi, a businessman from Karachi, Pakistan, setting up textile trading in Tanzania three decades ago. Gradually, growing from trader to the largest manufacturer in Tanzania, he changed the face of textile industry in Tanzania.

Having created a stable base, he incorporated The Cosmos Group. The founder’s penchant for business is carried forward by his son, Mohammad Owais Pardesi, who is the chairman of the Group. Under his leadership, the Company has diversified into construction, farming and trading. The real estate unit of the Cosmos Group- M/s Cosmos Properties Ltd is involved in the construction of residential and commercial complexes.
