Elevating Lives With Heart & Responsibility

Our People
Our Product
Our Environment

These three priorities guide our actions.

Grand Royal Group was founded in 1995 with fifty employees and quickly established a reputation for providing consumers with exceptional products and service. Throughout the subsequent twenty-one years, we have striven to create and maintain quality products and brands, to demonstrate a responsible approach to business and to ensure that we remain one of the most respectable companies in Myanmar. We are now the market leader, creating over 2,000 jobs and making a major contributor to Myanmar’s economy.

Mr. Sanjay Gupta

CEO

“I believe that not only as individuals but also as a corporation we have the obligation to add value to society that makes our existence possible. Striking a balance between looking after the development of our employees, the interests of our shareholders while minimizing our social impact and reaching out in meaningful ways to disadvantaged sections of society is key. We would like to foster a transparent and law abiding Corporate culture and our payment of approximately 70 Billion MMK ( Special Goods taxes + Commercial taxes) over 2016-17 reflects our commitment to do the right thing. We would like to believe that we are taking leadership in critical issues like environmental protection and our Environmental Management Certification ISO 14001:2004 reflects our commitment to reducing our environmental impact through proper waste water handling.

Myanmar, while rich in natural resources and human potential, suffers from lack of infrastructure and access to medical facilities in many areas. The Grand Royal Group has been working in targeted areas to provide rural communities with free eye treatment and restore eye sight while providing piped water infrastructure in others.

Since 2008, we have provided over Kyat 644 million to fund our sight-saving project.  This provides eye treatment to those who might otherwise be unable to afford it, helping them to continue to live full and purposeful lives. Over the last nine years, we have made possible 24 missions taking this expertise throughout Myanmar, including to rural areas where such medical care is least accessible. This has resulted in over 8,200 surgical operations being performed and treatment provided to almost 74,000 people across Myanmar.
