OUR STORY

WHO is Abu Afif

1974 marked the start point of Abu Afif Sweets. Founder, Mounir Jamal (1929-1980) with his eloquent experience in oriental sweets decided to open a small shop in Al-Adhamiyah, a neighborhood in the east-central district of the city of Baghdad, Iraq.
The late Mounir Jamal was one of the first to introduce “Znoud el sit” to Iraq among other products.
After demand increased,many other products were introduced that we are famous for to this day. His aim was to produce delicious, authentic oriental sweets; 4 decades later his mission carries on.

Our Commitment

After the passing of the founder Mounir Jamal,  his two sons Afif and Nabil continued the mission of Abu Afif Sweets.

In 1983 they expanded to a larger shop in Karrada, Baghdad where they continued on serving top of the line quality.

Their passion and persistence for excellence led Abu Afif Sweets to become one of the most distinguished and prestigious pastry establishments in Iraq.
