Founded in 1994, Arian Milan has been incorporated in Iran as a dry processor, packer and exporter of Iranian pistachios.  Since conception two pillars of our activities has been building long-term relationship with selected clients and spending time and efforts on research and development of product lines that would help in sustaining that cherished relationship.

Accordingly since mid nineties we established a processing plant engaging in a dynamic processing line consisting of quality control and sorting facilities.  After many years of R&D this resulted in introduction of two new product lines, MMO (modified mechanically opened) pistachios and DARP (diminished Aflatoxin risk pistachios)

Since late nineties with the increasing importance of health related issues in Europe concerning Aflatoxin contamination in food products and specifically pistachios, Arian Milan put in place an extra emphasis in overcoming this old established concern.  This emphasis finally bore fruit and in 2006 Arian Milan achieved the commercial production of pistachios with low contamination risk in industrial scale.  As a result of successful implementation of this project in 2008 Mr. Mehdi Agah, a long-standing pioneer of Iranian pistachio industry joined the company and became a partner and Chairman of Arian Milan.

Today, after successful commercialization of these new product lines, Arian Milan is in a unique position to offer interested customers long-term trade cooperation with clearance guarantee at mutual agreed control regimes.
