The history of the Ali Group dates back to pre-independence days, almost a century ago, when the highly dynamic personality of Sir Syed Maratib Ali envisioned the importance of trade and industry in the sub-continent. He expanded his agricultural business into trading and industrial partnerships.

Treet Corporation was set up in 1952 and is almost as old as the country itself. Companies within the Group are semi-autonomous units responsible for their own budgeting, new products launch, market decisions and new venture exploration and pricing.
