Who We Are

Over Half a Century in Food Business …

Our Business

The first Akhavan store was established in Montreal, Canada in 1989. The four Ajabi brothers had the idea to start their own business in the food trade, and so the store was named Akhavan since “Akhavan” means “the brothers” in Persian.

Apart from the two branches, there is also a wholesale business based in Ville Saint-Laurent. The wholesaling business imports directly from Persia and other exotic locales around the globe, and distributes mainly to grocery stores in Canada.

Akhavan Food is an experienced importer and supplier of Mediterranean foods, and we provides a variety of healthy foods such as fresh dates, dried fruits, nuts, olive oil and much more.

Akhavan brings a taste of Persia to Montréal.
