Our Profile

When brothers unite,
legacies are made.

Two brothers, Jamnadas Harchandani and Amrutlal S. Harchandani reined the Indian Fryums Market for 20 years. With their delicious food brand Vishal Papdi and unforgettable flavours of fryums this brand conquered the hearts of many.

Shri Jamnadas Harchandani had a vision of catering shing and chana to the people of India. Shri Jamnadas Harchandani’s vision was not without meaning. Today, Ekta Foods is a famous trader of the largest grade Sahurashtra peanuts across the country. The quality is stringently maintained because the peanuts are hand selected and then roasted to a perfect golden.

Besides their famous peanuts, Ekta Foods roasted chana is also a very popular
selling product. Today, with the younger minds contributing to the business, it is reaching new pinnacles of success and innovation.
