Our History

The Ismail family has been associated with the biscuit industry since 1950s. In the year 1988, Ismail Industries Limited emerged on the business landscape of Pakistan and ever since has expanded its horizons in multiple industries.

From delightful treats to industrial raw materials, Ismail Industries offers a broad spectrum of quality products to its consumers and corporate customers. This journey started from CandyLand, the first division of the group, which is not only a star performer for the group but also a leader of the industry in confectionery products. The next major milestone was Bisconni which came into existence in 2002, with the aim of providing the finest quality biscuits in Pakistan. Today, Bisconni has grown to become the leader in the value-added cookies category in Pakistan. In 2006, SnackCity was incorporated with the vision of becoming a leading player in the snacks industry of Pakistan.

Whereas, Astro Films was incorporated in 2004 and is now a renowned manufacturer of CPP, BOPP and BOPET films. We are the pioneers in the CPP category and have recently imported a state-of-the-art plant from Italy that will strengthen our artillery.
