Solico Group Companies is one of the largest and most well-known food producers in Iran. Mr. Gholamali Soleimani founded the group, and over the years, by expanding its activities in meat, dairy, ice cream, and beverage products, he has sought to improve the health and nutrition cycle in the country and provide the best products to Iranians. Mr. Soleimani, a mathematics graduate from Shahid Beheshti University, started his activities in the 1970s by distributing meat products and gradually became the largest food producer in Iran.

Solico Group Companies History

In 1978, Mr. Gholamali Soleimani, Solico Group owner or founder, started producing hamburgers in the basement of the company and gradually was able to expand meat production. Tehran Meat Facilities Company (Solico) started operating and, in 1981, moved to Ahmadabad Mostofi. The company’s main activity was initially hamburger production. In 1983, Amol Meat Products Company was established, and by focusing on quality and superior products, it quickly gained the trust of consumers and supervisory bodies. The company’s products were welcomed not only in Iran but also in other countries in the region. Thus, under the leadership of Mr. Gholamali Soleimani, Solico Group developed and became one of the largest food producers in Iran.

Solico Group Expanding Production

In 1991, Gholamali Soleimani, the founder of Solico Group, established Kalah Dairy Products Company in Amol to start producing quality and varied dairy products. This company then led to the establishment of Aris Ice Cream Company. In 2013, with the establishment of Baharan Gol in Karaj, ice cream production also increased. This development reflects Gholamali Soleimani’s thinking and approach to improving and diversifying Solico Group’s production.

  • Also in 2013, Kalah Tehran dairy factory was added to Solico Group’s dairy companies and started producing long-life milk products. This development indicates the diversity and expansion of Solico Group’s products to improve consumer services.
  • With the expansion of its production, Solico Group created a direct distribution system for its products to 31 regions of Iran and, in 2011, established Bani Chav company to provide professional distribution services.
