About Us

The journey of Shan’s remarkable success starts from 1981, when the dream of one man became a reality. A visionary entrepreneur, an avowed humanist and a committed philanthropist, Mr. Sikander Sultan, CEO Shan Foods (Pvt.) Ltd, helped pave the way to success by pioneering in the spice business. It was Mr. Sikander Sultan’s commitment and dedication that starting from a single room company, today Shan Foods stands as one of the most reputed food company and a powerful global brand with presence in more than 65 countries across 5 continents. Initially spice recipe mixes were indeed shared within the family and it was not until much later that orders from distant relatives, friends, acquaintances and even perfect strangers started to arrive. Overtime, the company prospered and Mr. Sikander Sultan decided to launch its very own brand with the name of SHAN. Since then there has been no looking back. Shan Foods (Pvt.) Ltd, has, over the past decade, changed more than ever before in its illustrious history.
Rejuvenating existing business, entering new ones, manufacturing high quality products and expanding into foreign markets are among the initiatives the company has undertaken with vigor. Today, Shan Foods (Pvt.) Ltd is Pakistan’s leading food company with its products being appreciated globally. Looking to expand its product line, Shan continues to introduce new products that better caters to the changing needs of the consumers. In order to take advantage of growth opportunities, Shan has now enhanced its production capacity even further with manufacturing units installed in UAE, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom and USA. The company now also harbors offices in Sharjah- UAE, Makka- KSA and Manchester- United Kingdom.
