Our story of Makhana started 80 years ago with the success of a personality Late Sri RamChandra Sah, who was born in a middle class peasant family and started the business of Raw Makhana on a small scale, at a time when hardly anyone knew about this crop and its health benefits. In due course of time, his honesty, business acumen and hard work led to the success and expansion of his business nationally and internationally. People started recognizing him as famous "MAKHANAWALA" in his fraternity.
Now, with an inspiration to take this legacy forward and to keep his name and values alive, we have ventured into developing this wholesome nutritious aquatic crop (Makhana/ Lotus seeds/Foxnuts) into ready to eat healthy snacks, so that it fulfills the nutritional needs of individuals and becomes a household name - known for its nutritious ingredient and delicious taste.
