The Journey Began by Establishing City Oil Mills


The day 6 February 1972 marks the beginning of a journey in Gandaria, Dhaka - one which marked the beginning of the company known as "CITY OIL MILLS" by the founder Chairman, Mr. Fazlur Rahman. The group literally started from scraps. The initial period was marked with a lot of hardships due to the post war era when the country faced an economic fallout. Initially the mission of the company was to produce mustard oil for the local market. The overwhelming demand for the product continued to increase and the company soon found its way into the business arena of Bangladesh.
