The family business is the most frequently encountered ownership model in the world. The impact of family-owned companies on the economy, society, and the environment is fundamental and therefore their sustainability and growth is crucial not only for the owning family but also for the well-being of their communities.

Tharawat is a community of family-owned companies that share a common vision of growth and positive impact and believe in their position as custodians of the legacies to be preserved for the next generation.
