The Founder

We had a humble beginning but we were blessed with intuitive foresight. Annapurna group was established by Late Shree Gouranga Chandra Ghosh, a visionary who saw the beginning of a food giant and helped it take its first baby steps. He initiated Sundarban Dairy Firm in 1952, and his steadfast and competent leadership soon took the company to newer heights.

Inspired by his efforts and vision, the organization followed suit, emerged as one of the leading dairy & Agro brands in the country with an enviable growth rate.

Our Journey

The last six decades have been all about progress. We’ve researched and chosen the choicest of ingredients from nature and created a bouquet of products around it. Dedicated towards the well-being of each and every consumer, our journey is inspired by the promise of purity. Today Annapurna has become one of the largest FMCG companies in the Eastern part of the country and is looking to extend its footprint all across the nation.

Since our inception in 1952, the Annapurna Group has toiled relentlessly to cater the purest form of food products to the end consumer. From its flagship product Annapurna Ghee to breakfast additives like Honey, Jam & Jelly, Sauces, Pickles, Fruit Squash, Fundaaz Fruit Beverages, to kitchen ingredients like Ginger Garlic Paste, a range of condiments in the form of Diptips and one stop cooking solutions like ReadyMate Wonder Gravy & Wonder Bowl, Annapurna is continuously evolved to meet the changing needs & requirements of every household.

The love and trust of our consumers, has helped us secure our position as one of the most trusted FMCG brands in the food category section of The Economic Times in March 2019. This accolade has helped us steadily transform ourselves from a family run business to into a corporate entity.
