Iran Dairy Industries

Company has constantly been the Leading one in dairy products’ market, and is ranked as the first in market share and amount of milk produced, and has considered the increase in market gains as its top-priority strategy.

In 1957, the company began to produce as massively as 45 tons of pasteurized milk on a daily basis. In 1968, Ministry of Agricultural Produces and Consumables managed to bring into existence Iran Dairy Industries Corporation out of Tehran Pasteurized Milk Company with three sub-companies operating in Tehran, Tabriz, and Shiraz. The corporation was, in the early 1970s, the executive operator for distributing free subsidy-aided milk in schools. After the revolution, Iran Dairy Industries Corporation was founded as part of the initiative for organizing thosecompanies involved with producing milk and related products. Since 1981, as the regional milk factory in Kerman started operating, up to the time other factories in Gorgan, Zanjan, Hamedan, Guilan, Khorramabad and Khouzestan were exploited, and Orumiyeh Milk and Pasteurized Dairies Co. was purchased in 1999, Iran Dairy Industries Corporation has constantly been busy expanding its factories, increasing its produces, and developing its markets.
