Knjaz Miloš was founded in 1811, while it operates in the current form since 2000.
After much legal wrangling, and several highly publicized competing takeover bids, Knjaz Miloš a.d. majority stake (58%) was bought in 2004 by FPP Balkan Ltd. consortium. The takeover was done in stages: in September 2004, FPP Balkan Limited investment fund, part of London-based FPP Group, bought through takeover bid a 25% stake at RSD17,200 per share. In December 2004 it launched another takeover bid and bought another 33% for RSD23,000 per share, which made a total of €57 million investment for 58% of the equity.
In January 2005, FPP Balkan Ltd. added Salford Investment Fund as their partners.
In December 2006, Knjaz Miloš a.d. obtained an ISO 22000 certification for food safety, the first company to obtain this certification in Serbia.
Knjaz Miloš is imported in the United States by A.B Company, Inc., and Grand Prix Trading Corp.
