Haji K. Syed Mohamed

Our History

Representing the dream and aspiration of an immigrant from India, Syed Mohamed Traders (Singapore) Pte Ltd is a well established international trading company incorporated in 2014 in Singapore. However, it boasts a long history that dates all the way back to 1936.


The company was known as K. Syed Mohamed Co. when it was first founded by the late Haji K. Syed Mohamed. The year was 1936, and the business was just a small spice and grocery shop in the Market Street area. Later, Syed Mohamed saw an opportunity in the growing demand along the business routes from Singapore to Malaysia. He decided to go ahead to supply in bulk all types of medicinal herbs, spices, pulses, lentils and rice, all imported from around the world.

Today, under the name of Syed Mohamed Traders (Singapore) Pte Ltd, the company has become a leading player in the same basic range of products, along with newly added items such as dairy products, dry fruits and nuts. Our flagship brands like Anarkali and Lahori Gate for basmati rice along with Syed and Azmin for dates and dry fruits have become favourites among many consumers. We serve a wide customer base that includes food manufacturers, ship chandlers, wholesalers, and major supermarkets in Singapore including NTUC FairPrice, Sheng Siong Supermarket, Giant Hyper Stores, Prime Supermarket and Mustafa Centre.


We are a company that thrives by carefully managing the entire supply chain, from farm to fork. To achieve this, we operate an extensive logistics network that includes active operation in Malaysia and Indonesia. Such a network provides us with deep local knowledge and allows us to exercise stringent quality control while meeting every customer’s specific needs. Likewise, our customer-centric philosophy has paid off well by earning us loyal customers from different continents. With prudence as our key management habit, we have always been able to manage market fluctuations to allow our customers to enjoy the best possible prices.

Our company’s business activities are classified into four major segments:

  1. Trading in agro-commodities
  2. Packing of pulses and rice
  3. Packing of dry fruits and nuts
  4. Grounded spice blends & seasoning

With over 80 years of dedicated service, we always ensure that we are among the best in the market by putting our hearts and minds into our business. We strongly believe in and are guided by our shared values:
