IFFCO also manufactures related derivatives and intermediates associated with these business segments. IFFCO brands include London Dairy, Tiffany, Noor, Rahma, Igloo and Al Baker.

But IFFCO is only one part of the Allana success story.

His brother Irfan Allana is the chairman of the Allana Group, but Feroz runs the firm’s Gulf operations. His vision and business acumen not only drives his business, but also ensures that his expertise is liberally employed by the federal government and various state governments of India, in the development of long-term plans for exports from India in general and agri-based products in particular.
