The production of sausage is in almost modern ways nowadays, although it began in Europe from the early eighteenth century, but in Iran, it began on November 2, 1304. An individual, Russians, named "Afunetsio", entered the port of Anzali seven years after the end of the First World War from Russia, through the Caucasus and North of Baku. Renting a small house within the Anzali harbor did not take much time and installing a simple sausage machine and equipment in less than a few hours was the start of this industry for marketing in Iran.
Due to the economic and social relations between Iran and Russia, which continued through the Caucasus for centuries, the local population was not so surprised by the arrival of a Russian family to Bandar Anzali. On the other hand, they also provided the necessary facilities for the production of new "Russian sausage" products for marketing in Iran. The first inventive product at the same small workshop in Anzali port was produced in the second Iranian month of November of 27 kilograms and was sent to several local elders as a gift. One of these people, Mirza Mohtasham Khan, was the code of God, who first strongly disagreed with the product in relation to the issue of consumed meat and how to slaughter or not slaughter meat used in sausage production out of Iranian market. Inonaisio invites Mirza Mohtashim Khan Lmiriyani, the Commander-in-Chief and a number of local elders, to visit his small workshop, where only two local Muslim workers were employed, and Mirza Mohtasham Khan, finally, expressed satisfaction with the production and use of slaughtered calves for marketing in Iran. He allowed it to Iranian market for its production on a limited scale. The production of "Russian sausages" in March 1304 (March 1926) had amounts to about 45 kilograms per day, most of which have been consumed in Anzali port.
In early 1306, Afunasiou decided to move his workshop to Tehran or create another small sausage production workshop in Tehran for marketing in Iran. In May 1306, he established another workshop in Tehran and at the current site of Manouchehri Street, and transferred it to a person called "Dreamsman". With the expansion of Tehran's urbanization and development, "Dreamsman" established in 1312 the first meat processing plant at the current site of the "Meat Factory" which became very successful due to marketing in Iran considering lack of advertising in Iran during that time. Before the victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 22, 1979, after the establishment of the Wish Factory in Tehran (1312), a few other factories were established in the Iranian market, including the Mykhailyan Company (1338), the Gilan Meat Factory in Rasht (1340) Cador (1342) and Laurk in Isfahan (1346) and Maedeh in Qazvin (1354) were active for marketing in Iran. Between 1354 and 1357, several other factories were established in Tehran and some of the cities that brought the total number of meat products factories in the Iranian market to 11 factories.
Current situation: After the victory of the Islamic Revolution, and especially after the end of the imposed war period (1359-1369), the number of companies producing meat products increased significantly out of marketing in Iran, while a large range of meat products was also marketed. In 2006, the number of companies producing meat products in Iranian market reached 150, which produced traditional meat products including sausages, hamburgers and various types of ham. Of these, about 13 companies made newer products, including types of meat and poultry nuggets, ready-to-eat frozen foods, and the like, for the domestic consumer market due to marketing in Iran. Of the total number of companies active in the production of various types of products and meat products (about 150 companies), 109 companies are currently members of the Iranian Meat Industry Association, some of them such as Kalde (Amol), Soleiko (Tehran), Caspian Composite Rasht), Daws (Shiraz) has an international or regional brand and has a number of other brands such as "Meatballs", "Andrea" and "Robat" of the national brand for marketing in Iran. As it was mentioned, after the Islamic Revolution, the number of companies producing meat products increased steadily in Iranian market, and the importance of the category of meat products during the imposed war period and due to the strong support of the producing factories in supplying the nutritional needs of the army to all the agents Manage the country and manage war. After the end of the imposed war, due to the increase in the country's demographic (beginning in the early 1990s), the expansion of urbanization, the increase of the young population of the country, the simplicity in the use of meat products, as well as the appropriate price, the amount of production of meat products until 2008 in Iranian market increased.
Exports of meat products
At present, various types of meat products of different quality are produced and supplied in Iranian market. In some cases, production samples are better than foreign ones due to the use of high quality raw materials (meat) and the use of appropriate technology and know-how, and this is promising. It is possible to export these goods to the outside, but unfortunately because of the problems of the export side, it is difficult or even impossible to do this, which makes it impossible for manufacturers to do this out of Iranian market. All units licensed by the Food and Drug Administration will be able to market their products after passing the legal procedures and carrying out the necessary tests if they receive a manufacturing license from the aforementioned authority, which must comply with the relevant standards and also they are to have advertising in Iranian market and global market.
