The following is a history of a family-run company describing over 70 years of growth and its successful day- to-day operation and management by three consecutive generations of the AhmadKhanlou, Yazdjerdi and Karimi families. Several members of these families also sit on the company board of directors.
Mr. Gholam Reza Yazdjerdi and Mr. Abolfazl AhmadKhanlou and Mr. Javad Karimi are the original cofounders of the company. Before establishing Taban, they had several bakeries in and around Tehran, Iran. They opened the mill originally to produce flour for their personal use in their bakeries. Eventually, they closed their bakeries and concentrated on running the company as their flour milling business developed and increased. Having started their professional careers as bakers has given these individuals a unique insight and perspective about how to produce flours.

Their practical hands-on expertise is still being utilized in "eye" and "touch" tests performed as a complement to advanced laboratory testing at the factory to insure the quality of company products.
