She is a first generation entrepreneur and studied up to MA and with a strong aspiration to provide quality and healthy food to general office going public, she ventured into the activity of providing packed lunch under the brand “palkfod”, 7 years back. Later with a view to expand our business activities in the field of manufacturing and marketing various food products and distribution and marketing of quality products of other third parties, we started My Home Foods (India) Private Limited, a private limited Company in 2010.
We are one of the leading suppliers of pulses and Masala products in Kerala in the brand name “My Home” and do have the largest range of approved quality pulses. We started this Small Scale Unit under a woman entrepreneur with only seven workers focusing on local market and since then growing in size and range of products.
