Welcome to Shehfe casings Company

The Shehfe family started in the Sheep Casings business in Damascus, Syria in the year 1920, when Serhan T. Shehfe, father of Wadih, William, Emile and Albert, shipped the first thousand original Syrian sheep casings cleaned and salted to Vienna, Austria and several shipments followed in the same way. In 1936, Wadih, the eldest son, joined the family business and developed exports to the USA, always as original, cleaned sheep casings.

In 1940, Albert Shehfe started the first selection plant in the Middle East, in Alexandria Egypt, where casings sent from all over the Middle East were selected and assorted according to international standards.  These were well preserved and could thus withstand long journeys of three to four months during World War II when shipped to the USA and Europe.
