Kaner was founded in 1942 by brothers Adam and Vedat whose commitment and tradition is still the core of the business which now has expanded beyond the borders of Cyprus.
Kaner-firm has represented many well-known consumer products worldwide, and in the 1970s established a network of stores across the island with Nicosia Mall as the largest on the island.
