PT SidoMuncul was established from a home industry managed by Mrs. Rakhmat Sulistio in Yogyakarta in 1940. She only had three employees at that time. This condition pushed her to produce herb in a more practical form (powder) when she moved to Semarang. In 1951, she established a simple company, named SidoMuncul. It means "the dream come true" at Jl. Mlaten, Trenggulun. With the first and best product, Against Cold Herb, her herb started to be well known and the demand was rising. Afterwards, the factory was not capable in generating a greater result caused by the increasing of market demand. In 1984, it moved to the Home Industry Environment at Jl. Kaligawe.
To respond the rising market demand, the factory is equipped with modern machines. The number of employees is also added. In anticipating the development in the future, it needs to build a more modern and bigger factory, the new 29 ha factory was built in Klepu, Ungaran, Bergas in 1997. Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X placed the first stone and the General Director of Medicine and Food Control, Drs. Wisnu Kaltim observed it.
The Minister of Health and Social Welfare of the Indonesian Republic, dr. Achmad Sujudi on 11 November 2000, legalized it. It was at the same time as SidoMuncul received two certificates, i.e. the Way to Formulate a Good Traditional Medicine and the Way to Formulate a Good Medicine, which is equal to pharmacy. This certificates made SidoMuncul as the only herb factory with the pharmacy standard.
PT. SidoMuncul is intended to develop a good herb industry. This intention made the factory concentrates more and becomes innovative. With the right materials (type, quantity, and quality) it will produce a good herb. To realize this intention, all plans of releasing new products are always preceded by literature study and intensive researches regarding the security, quality, and market sampling. To guarantee the quality, all production steps; starts from the raw material processed up to selling it to the market, are under a tight quality supervision. All employees are intended to develop at any time, so that it will make a better result.
