Milan Kordestani, CEO and Founder of Milan Foods and Guin Records, was born in the prestigious area of Stanford, California. While being raised in Stanford, California, Kordestani attended Phillips Brooks Elementary School. In 2009, Kordestani’s family departed for London, England, after his parents decided to divorce, which allowed him the opportunity to enroll and attend Eaton Square School. However, by 2010, he moved back to California and attended high school at Sacred Heart Preparatory. Kordestani graduated from Sacred Heart Preparatory in 2017.
Kordestani’s young life included riding horses, which he began as early as 10 years of age. His love of animals began after he was thrown from atop a runaway horse, while he was trail riding one day. The pivotal moment proved to be substantial to the youngster, as he made a conscious choice to get back on the horse, which most children his age would consider the ordeal to be too terrifying.
That is the same tenacity and determined spirit that helped Kordestani throughout the early stages of his career and ultimately become a highly successful, yet compassionate, businessman. Milan Farms was founded by Kordestani in 2015. His mission was to create an environment that would be used to raise poultry, organically and humanely. From the beginning, Milan Farms has been completely transparent in how animals are raised. By using 100 percent pure saffron, all animals are free range and produce organic eggs. The company’s intent is to provide consumers with an authentic and honest solution for purchasing animal-based products. By 2016, Milan Farms began expanding its free-ranging products with three additional farms along the west coast, which includes a farm in Colorado.
Currently, Kordestani is conducting extensive research in hydroponic and aquaponic systems for growing saffron. The innovative technology will be an enhancement of the traditional production and processing of saffron, which Kordestani recognizes has been beneficial to Milan Farm’s mission. As the company continues to experiment with a wide spectrum of salinity levels along with various types of minerals within the water, Milan Farms intends on continuing to produce a crop that ensures a humane outcome for animals.
