PLACED IN THE
“ON THE GO”
Our story started in 1877, when Hossein Rahmani established a dried fruits and nuts business in Northern Persia, famous for its agricultural richness. Over 100 years later, his grandson Abouzar spent most of his childhood and adolescence on the farms and in the factories of the family business, which grew into the largest agro food business of the region in the mid-1990s. There he became a connoisseur of ingredient origins, quality and an expert in processing methods. During his university studies in Brussels, Belgium in 2004, Abouzar noticed a gap in the market: premium quality nut and dried fruit snacks are not available in convenient formats and locations. As a result, Mani - from the surname Rahmani - was born.
The Mani brand was successfully commercialised in the Middle East in 2009 and after a partial exit of the business in 2012, Abouzar brought the brand to Europe, and started selling Mani's 100% natural "on the go" nut, dried fruit and seed mixes in the Benelux countries in 2015. Along the way, he was joined by his niece Funda and his wife Julia. In 2019, Mani moved its production to Rancate (Mendrisio), Switzerland, and its coverage in Europe has grown to 6+ countries, with the products placed in the checkouts of 30+ large retail groups, at over 5'000 points of sale. And this is just the beginning...
Mani snacks are produced by our production company Domani Food SA at its facility in Rancate (Mendrisio), Switzerland. On a daily basis we make sure that best practices in food safety, quality control and sustainability are respected, to make a contribution to consumer long-term health as well as the environment.

What experts say...
Research tells us that we should be reducing our intake of added sugar, salt, processed foods, trans-fats and unnatural chemicals from our diet.
Mani offers delicious and naturally nutritious snacks that support and nourish the body. Unlike many current competitors, they have no added sugar or salt and are naturally rich in beneficial fats, protein, fibre, nutrients and antioxidants. They leave you feeling satisfied and are ideal for daily consumption, even for those that are gluten free or on lower GI diets.
I especially love that Mani are dedicated to being 100% natural - they use organic ingredients that are not processed or tampered with and are totally free of chemicals, additives and unhealthy fats.
