Welcome to Solico group

Vertically Integrated Supply Chain



High-quality and proper production requires suitable raw material that is up to international standards. Therefore, given the diversity of the products, they are classified in five different categories; the largest of these groups is milk. The raw material required for these five categories is provided from nine different regions in the country. The second stage is providing the material and necessities that include sugar, cooking oil, cocoa powder, stabilizer, and preservatives. The items related to packaging and printing are the third group, which includes paper, nylon, IML containers, and ice-cream containers. The forth category is related to none-production equipment including machinery, technical requirements, facilities and administrative equipment. The fifth category is related to acquiring meat products from ranchers, slaughterhouses, and importers and is one of the most important parts of the meat supply chain.



One of the most important points after the acquirement of raw material is transportation of these materials to warehouses around the country as well as to the manufacturing sectors. They need modern and efficient trucks for transportation, which should be loaded quickly and delivered in the shortest time possible to the subsidiary manufacturing facilities of the Solico Company across the country to maintain their high quality.
