The founding father of the Adamjee Group was Adamjee Haji Dawood who was born in 1880 in Jetpur, India. Initially, trade was limited to the rice business but later diversified into jute operations. In 1922, he established the largest match factory in Asia in Rangoon, Burma. Thereafter he set up a rice mill in Rangoon & a jute mill in Calcutta. The British Government knighted Adamjee Haji Dawood in 1933 for his work as a keen philanthropist & for financing a number of educational institutions.

In less than three decades, the Adamjee Group ran over thirty industries and enterprises. With the creation of Bangladesh in 1971, the group lost

Adamjee Jute Mills, the largest Jute Mill of its kind in the world. A host of other businesses were also taken over by the Government of Bangladesh including Sugar, Tea, Textiles, and Cooking Oil. Later,Muslim Commercial Bank and Adamjee Life Insurance were both nationalized by the Government of Pakistan in 1974.
