Iran Mellas Company (IMC), the first instant dry yeast producer of the country, began its operations in May 1994 with the a capacity of 2500 tons per year. The name “Fariman” was chosen as its trading name, due to our factory’s close proximity to the town of Fariman. The factory is located on a 9-hectare land with 10 thousand square meters of structures. The advanced technology, exported from the Austrian company of Andritz, as well as the expertise employed in our factory, allows for our products to be of the highest quality and being on par with international key players. The considerable increase in our sales, exports, and demands for our agents are evidence for this claim.
