Vision And Mission

Establish Shan as the leading culinary brand, offering authentic traditional recipes & home food solutions, with relentless focus on excellence in all we do, ensuring a wholesome experience for our consumers around the world.

Company Profile

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, Chairman, Shan Foods (Pvt.) Ltd, helped pave the way to success by pioneering in the spice business with a single room operation.

Initially, recipe mixes were only shared within the broader family but in a very short span of time they gained popularity and orders started pouring in from friends, acquaintances and general consumers. Overtime, the company prospered and Mr. Sultan decided to launch his very own brand, “SHAN” and since then there has been no turning back!

Today, Shan is a powerful global brand that has presence in over 65 countries across 5 continents.
