Elson Foods is one of the premier brands of quality confectionery in Bangladesh. Our core business focuses on candy and chocolate manufacturing, with an aim to produce finer products at affordable prices. We have more than 20 brands present in the local market and expanding our presence beyond borders.
The Company was established in 2001, with the intention to cater for the mass population. The idea was to bring international standards of quality and taste to the local communities. Serving such products within the buying capacity of our people was a challenge that Md. Nurul Islam was willing to explore. Having 30 years of experience in import and trading, and a passion for food and confectionery industry, Mr. Islam started to gather knowledge on the production and engineering of food technology. He observed a huge import of jelly candies and an ever increasing demand of such products. Finally in 2001, the journey of Elson Foods began. The plant was set up under a technical collaboration and supervision of a company based in Taiwan, producing first ever in Bangladesh “Lychee - Mini Cup Edible Gel” which is a favorite among the children. The primary objective was to manufacture import substitute quality food products in Bangladesh, saving foreign currency and reducing import dependency. Since then, the company explored other confectionery lines, and created value for consumers with various expansions in chocolates, candies, cereal bars, and wafer biscuits.
