The history of Mani started in the Persian region, famous for its vineyards and orchards where families pass on their cropland from generation to generation. Among these were the Rahmani family with a heritage in the food sector of more than 130 years, whose youngest son, Abouzar, gave birth to the Mani brand.
In his childhood, Abouzar spent a lot of his time on the farms and in the factories of the family's bulk dried fruits and nuts business, that had been established by his grandfather Hossein in 1887. There, from a young age, he became a connoisseur of ingredient quality, origins and an expert in processing methods.
During his studies in Europe in 2004, he noticed a gap in the market - high quality dried fruits and nuts products were mainly sold in bulk and not regarded as a convenient snack. Hence, he went on to combine modern European marketing and manufacturing techniques with his heritage and knowledge about dried fruits and nuts, and a brand was born: Mani, from the surname Rahmani.
