Moidunni Bava Mundenkkattil
Founder & Chairman
Moidunni Bava Mundenkkattil made his first business stint into the spices and food market in 1984, shortly after his arrival and brief experience working in the UAE.
This was at a time when the young country was birthing a momentous market peak in history, welcoming expatriates and investors in great waves. With opportunity in sight and a spirited entrepreneurial drive, Moidunni Bava set sail his small business enterprise called Atiq Abdulla flour mill, capitalising on industrial knowledge that he attributes to his agriculturist family roots in South India.
Starting single handedly, and on minimal resources, this humble concept of a dry and loose milling flour mill catered primarily to a very familiar Indian crowd who called UAE their home.
Guided by raw, organic passion and an affinity for authentic quality that tasted like home, he established his trade in premium Indian flour and spices, and an ample customer base early on. In fact it was this superlative emphasis on quality that laid the foundation and fortune of RF Combine despite the ultra competitive food sector that was to emerge exponentially in the later years.
By swiftly roping and designating younger talents with fresh perspectives in key positions, Moidunni Bava further consolidated the success graph of the corporate entity across different segments and diversified its portfolio of holdings in manufacture, distribution, wholesale and retail.
He has laid down the blueprint for future endeavours and global expansions of the firm, that promises to uphold the principles on which it has been founded and deliver lasting consistent value as it has been over the last 3 decades, to customers, employees, investors and stakeholders alike.
