Gruppo Haraya


Adversity brings out the best in people and reveals who your true friends are. This is how Gruppo Haraya began – with a seemingly insurmountable challenge that tested and stretched not only their talents but also their patience. It is through this that they have learned that they make an awesome team and that together, they can achieve anything. And what better way to test that idea than by creating their own company? So they did.

Gruppo Haraya came from the word “Haraya” which means imagination. They chose the name because they all are dreamers. They dream of a better life for themselves and their loved-ones. They dream of a better life for their people. They dream of a country that allows diversity, individuality, and equality is a norm rather than an exception. They make dreams a reality. They turn your imagination into reality. That’s what Gruppo Haraya is all about.
