We are the third generation who are working in the food industry of our country, Iran. 95 years ago and after commencing the wide activities in oil exploration, the first generation decided to migrate from Isfahan to Khuzestan to enjoy such economic boom. My grandfather’s name was Abdorrasoul Meysamifard, born in 1896 in Isfahan. His initial activities dated back to 1921 just three years after finishing the World War I. During this era when the weakness of central government was more than ever, the main problem for an entrepreneur was economic activity without any security. This problem of course could not diminish his eagerness towards the production. A little after agricultural activities for producing the national strategic cereals, he established the first modern factory of flour production in 1931 in Khuzestan province so that the value chain, also called added value, would be completed in line with his activities. Soon and ten years later, he constructed and put into operation his second milling facility in 1941 when the World War II had brought the country into its knees so that providing the essential food of the nation was fulfilled.
When he died in October 1963, through use of the experiences obtained from the father in production, the second generation established a modern milling factory known as South Flour in 1969 in Khuzestan province by using the German updated industry of “MIAG” later acquired by Bühler of Swiss.
With advent of Islamic Revolution in 1978 and start of the Iran – Iraq War, this modern milling complex with a 10-year operation experience supported highly the fronts based on its national duty for 8 years and none stop 365 days through continuing its production in the view of all the damages incurred by the war to the factory; this is among one of the honors of the second generation of this industrial group. This factory started its activities with a 60 tons per day capacity in about 50 years ago and now the current capacity is 600 tons per day.
As the war finished and the reconstruction era started, the idea of producing pasta by the means of a fully automatic and industrial line was came to the mind of the family’s second generation, my father Mr. Morteza Meysamifard, in order to prevent importation of such product from Turkey. As a result, the large size state of art factories of Tak Makaron and Ardaran were constructed under his supervision. Within the partnership framework with other three economic groups, he constructed these two production sites in 1994 in Alborz Province by the means of the European cutting edge technology technology of “Swiss Bühler” and those were put into operation in 1997.
Mr. Morteza Meysamifard was manager of these two factories for 18 years and increased the production capacity of Tak Makaron company from 60 to 400 tons daily.
The third generation selected its origin meaning Khuzestan, in 2009 for continuing the activities and established a large size and modern, factory of TAK NAN by using the state-of-the-art machinery and equipment manufactured in Europe in order to produce various types of industrial bread with 50 tons of capacity per day and put it into operation in 2013. As the largest and most modern food industry site in south west of Iran, this industrial site started up the production line of all health-based biscuits in 2016 by enjoying the European updated industry as well as collaborating with German consultants.
Currently, TAK NAN JONOUB produces 70 tons daily of various types of bread derived from its flour mill in Khuzestan Province.
All machinery of this Company have been purchased from the best European brands from countries like Germany, Netherland, Italy, Spain and Swiss and the designed, installed and put into operation by the Iranian and foreign engineers. In order to keep and improve the quality, this Department, identify and control the bottlenecks through implementation of HACCP System during the whole process from the raw materials to production, packaging, warehousing, and exit of products from the Company and performs numerous tests on the raw materials, products during the process as well as the final products.
