United Wholesale Grocers announces the death of Mohammed Ramzan

Mohammed Ramzan, chairman and founder of United Wholesale Grocers, passed away suddenly at his residence in Pakistan on 27 September.

Established in 1977, United Wholesale Grocers grew to become one of the largest privately owned companies in the UK. The cash & carry operator now has three branches – two in Glasgow (Springburn and Polmadie) and one in Gateshead – and a turnover in excess of £220 million.

Ramzan (pictured) is survived by his wife, children and grandchildren. His sons Nabeel and Amaan both joined United Wholesale Grocers in 2005, and Amaan has been managing director over the past decade.

Commenting on Ramzan’s death, retail director Tom Slaven said: “He will be remembered for his astute business acumen and philanthropic qualities along with his charitable work that he did throughout the UK and also in his homeland of Pakistan. He never faltered in his passion and desire to help others, and his endeavours will be sadly missed by all.”
