Astrabon is a leading hotel and resort supplier that is well known for providing high quality kitchenware and F&B related products to the resorts throughout the Maldives.
Formed in 2000, Astrabon belongs to the Capital Group, a network of companies owned and managed by Capital Travel & Tours. “Earlier, resorts had their supplies brought in from Singapore, through Singaporean agents,” says CEO of both Astrabon and Capital Travel & Tours, Yoosuf Riffath, while describing why he decided to form a company that provides supplies to the resorts in the Maldives.
According to him, since the beginning of Capital Travel & Tours in 1990, he had the opportunity to visit various resorts within the country. And during these visits he had numerous conversations with general managers and others who were serving managerial posts at these resorts.
“I wanted to do something that would make things easier for them, and that’s when the idea of forming Astrabon came to me,” explains Riffath. read more
