WHY SEKEM?

SEKEM was founded with the idea of sustainable development and giving back to the community. The vision that brought Dr. Ibrahim Abouleish to dig the first well in the vast desert land still resounds in SEKEMs approach of conducting business. Like a compass, our vision, mission, and values guide us in everyday work in all SEKEM companies. ( https://www.sekem.com/en/index/ attach to SEKEM)
